Cost of Sprawl

Report

Introduction

Urban sprawl is a phenomenon that is witnessed globally, though most predominantly in North America. Unfortunately, the costs of sprawl including increased emissions, chronic disease and reduced productivity are often hidden. This report compares the long-term economic and social benefits of urban density to the development trend that is sprawl. It argues that the true cost of sprawl is distorted by “suburban myths” and the misalignment of price structures.
