Nichols Companies, residential developers, claim to have been the first developers to make a ""country club district"" a part of developments. Jesse Clyde Nichols's objective was to ""develop whole residential neighborhoods that would attract an element of people who desired a better way of life, a nicer place to live and would be willing to work in order to keep it better."" His philosophies about city planning greatly influenced other developments in the United States, including Beverly Hills and the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, as well as Shaker Heights, Ohio. He advocated preservation of trees and natural contours, while proscribing gridiron street network. He used deed restrictions to implement many policies including segregation."
