Sprawl Repair

Galina Tachieva, writing for TCC News:

The only reasonable option is to repair sprawl—-to deal with it straight on, by finding ways to reuse and reorganize as much of it as possible into complete, livable, robust communities. Pragmatism calls for repair through redevelopment into viable human-scale settlements—-places that are walkable, with mixes of uses and transportation options. Realistically, portions of sprawl are likely to remain in their current state, while others may devolve, reverting to agriculture or nature.

I’m about halfway through Galina’s Sprawl Repair Manual and she presents a compelling case for how and why sprawl should be morphed into diverse, livable communities. This article was a great summary of that idea.
