Merge[edit]

It looks to me as if Laws of Burgos, New Laws and Laws of the Indies are distinct enough to be kept separate. --Henrygb 08:00, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

I would keep the subjects seperate also

New Laws though some of the ideas should probably be included in Laws of the Indies the entry itself is a stand alone work of Bartolome de Las Casas and should be given that due respect. As for the other entries I have no knowledge. --khender1 May 31, 2007

Urban planning[edit]

This seems to belong rather to urban planning than to this entry:

==The Laws today==

Design guidelines are becoming more and more of a standard today in American cities. “Design guidelines came into use in the 1970’s and 1980’s as many American communities realized the visual damage being done by poorly conceived improvement projects.”<noref>[1]</noref> Programs such as Main Street Improvement programs for downtown revitalization have been implemented in many places to increase the aesthetics and walkability of a town or city. Other programs have begun to return cities to their previous status as places reflecting the Laws of the Indies. “The physical planning effect of the Laws of the Indies’ plaza requirement on communities throughout Spain’s former colonies has been striking…To this day, plazas offer visitors and residents a memorable, walkable experience.”<noref>[2]</noref>

Today’s design guidelines serve to maintain and preserve architecture and plazas, set precedence in quality of space, and foster the quality of a specific communal area. The Laws have directly affected this concept of guidelines on urban design.
