This chapter provides an overview of the work on the Plan Piloto de la Habana. It focuses on the two elements of the master plan defined by José Luis Sert: dividing the city into sectors and devising a classified road system. The determination of sectors and roads had two prerequisites: fixing the limits of the metropolitan area and an analysis of the land use within those limits. It discusses how the definition of metropolitan limits could be used as the basis for new legislative requirements. It argues that such legislation would stipulate that the city authorities would provide utilities only for repartos by supplying utilities even though they had not been consulted during planning stages.
