The problems of a sprawling city

 

Where do you live?

A grassy patch to call my own.

I want to live in a city that allows me to:

  • live, work and play in close proximity,
  • have easy access to inexpensive and efficient public transport,
  • replace the car with a bicycle for short trips.

Urban sprawl creates:

  • barriers to social interaction, leading to isolation,
  • limited mobility options and dependance on the motor car.

It’s called, “Density Done Well“.

‘Cycling’ is sport and recreation. ‘Riding a bicycle’ is everyday activity. No sweat. As easy as walking, but faster.
