FLOR500, Garden 424 John Nolen, Town Planner (1869–1937) John Nolen planned the city of Venice, Florida, in 1925. He said it was his big opportunity to design a city from the beginning. The resort would balance tourism, trade, and agriculture. He said, “Everything should be done to regain public ownership of the waterfront.” He designed subdivisions and other projects for fifteen other cities in Florida, including West Palm Beach, St. Petersburg, and Sarasota.
