dc.description.abstract Although designed to alleviate the many social and economic problems besetting American cities, urban renewal programs have been the object of extensive criticisms. These range from comments that the programs help those most who need it least to suggestions that such programs have disruptive, and possibly destructive, effects on communities, families, and individuals. This paper reports a study designed, in part, to investigate the latter type of criticism and to provide an evaluation for a local urban renewal agency. The study was concerned with an assessment of the extent to which relocated persons were satisfied with the urban renewal program and the relocation process. The population studied consisted of 150 permanently relocated households from 2 urban renewal areas in Rochester, NY; data were gathered through an interview schedule. The findings provided a positive assessment of the relocation process because most of the respondents seemed to feel that urban renewal was a good thing, and expressed general satisfaction with their new surroundings. en_US
