Frederick Law Olmsted Jr's (Senior died in 1903) recommendations for updating civic infrastructure at the outset of the 20th century for Newport, Rhode Island. The Olmsted Family and their landscape planning firm had a long history with Newport, even then, so it is likely that many of these recommendations were enacted.
