Symposium: Urban Sprawl
This article examines the literature of the sprawl versus growth management experience in order to classify and analyze what is known about growth management's effect on land use and infrastructure as well as on local housing and public service costs. Do the patterns of development spawned by growth management actually reduce the amount of land needed and thereby save infrastructure costs? Do they drive up housing costs? Do they have an effect on public service costs? It examines the implications of planned versus more traditional development on four areas: (1) land consumption and natural habitat, (2) public capital construction or infrastructure, (3) private capital construction in the form of housing, and (4) fiscal impacts involving direct development to areas of excess service capacity and away from those locations that would have to expand public services and infrastructure.
