an excellent introduction to the topic of sprawl, 5 February 2001
Author: Lisa Stage (lstage) from Tucson, AZ
This documentary is a must-see overview of the problems of sprawled development in the West. It covers history, transportation problems, social concerns, environmental impact and -- best of all -- solutions. There is excellent coverage of attitudes towards land use planning, the partnership between environmentalists and ranchers to preserve open space, and the growing movement back towards urban living. As a resident of the arid Southwest, I was a little disappointed in the presentation of the ranchers without mention of their impacts on the land. But one of the major points of the film is that subdivision home buyers are being sold on a Western myth that their very homes are destroying, and the cowboy is an integral part of that myth.
