Land Use Decisions: Ground Zero And Sprawlmart

Jane Holtz Kay, author of "Asphalt Nation: How the Automobile Took Over America and How We Can Take It Back" comments on land use decisions facing the nation from "Ground Zero" to rural sprawl.

"[Ground Zero] is the besieged turf is a symbol of less emotionally charged spaces where advocates have begun to ally and fight for urban and environmental principles...communities across the country have begun to address and appropriate land use decisions...reserving the landscape stops the fringe from mindless commerce and the urban core from a population drain."
