Subdivide and Conquer: A Modern Western

57 min
HD209 .S83 1999 DVD

In the West, as in the rest of the country, sprawl is gobbling up the land. What makes it more shocking in the West is that it assaults our cultural myths about the frontier, its wide-open spaces and unique landscapes.

After examining the causes of sprawl and its devastating effect on our sense of community and the environment, Subdivide and Conquer suggests remedies and shows examples of sound public policy and good land use planning. It seems that, when presented with a real choice, most of us want to live in distinct, well-designed neighborhoods, with all the amenities and attractions that they provide, and where we don't have to spend inordinate amounts of time in our cars.
