Is Central Florida Developing Too Fast?

More than 15 projects and 70,000 homes are in the works for Central Florida, which has some activists concerned about sprawl.

"Planners are banking on increasingly stringent rules, smarter designs and more developer contributions for such things as roads, schools and wildlife protection to better order the region's growth.

But there is growing fear that the developments are sowing the seeds of sprawl, surging toward some of the region's most prized wetlands and landscapes."
