The article presents a point of view on sprawl and compact growth issues. The sprawling growth scenario will require 188,000 additional lane-miles of local roads and 4.6 million more water and sewer hookups and is projected to cost more than the compact growth scenario. According to the projection of Robert Burchell, by 2025, compact growth would lessen local deficits by $4.5 billion yearly. Seven percent of the projected 61 million new U.S. residents would live in compact growth areas as what the compact growth scenario assumes. Compact growth makes sense in both economic terms and human terms.
