This chapter examines Soviet developments in the industrial city of Rodniki. Development in Rodniki was delayed even longer than in Belaya Kalitva. A city plan was not approved until the late 1960s; and a 1987 review of the plan's implementation, noting works that were left incomplete and imbalances in urban development, concluded that Rodniki's general plan had “not been fulfilled.” However, it also found that “[o]verall construction took place in accordance with [the general plan's] proposals” and did not violate planning decisions. The chapter then concludes that, at least in small cities, to the extent that urban modernity took shape, it conformed to the norms and forms of city-building.
