Staturday – How We Live Vs. How We Build

Stat: According to the 2010 U.S. Census, there are an average 2.6 people per household.

Wow! This is a great visual tool to explain what is wrong with how we are building versus the reality of how we actually live. Please, pass this along to your friends. Let them know we need to stop the sprawl ASAP!

    Spot on. This, combined with the common misconception that new is always better, has led to a grievous over-extension of city services. When a relatively static population irresponsibly sprawls into outlying areas, infrastructure and services are stretched to the point of inefficiency, crime rises and the community suffers. To build chipboard and vinyl suburbs without nurturing the heritage neighborhoods is like sewing a beautiful fringe on a rotten fabric.
