Typical Experimental City may look like this. At left is computerized communications complex; at center lies atomic power plant, while at right is greenhouse for vegetables and greenery.

Thanks, sir, I cried, 'tis fit for crops,
But where d'ye live, and where d'ye shop?
You'll plan atomic plants downtown,
Till Three Mile Island gets renown.

Thank goodness all the greenery is efficiently centralized in a giant greenhouse instead of spread all over the city willy-nilly where people might see and enjoy it.

So, in future we talk like Soviet secret agent? Or is word "the" no longer exists?
