For most of us, the American Dream is to own a single family home, on a suburban half acre with a fenced backyard for our two children and a dog to play in safely. The problem is the impact of supplying these homes with the vital infrastructure of roads, water, and sewer paid for by the central city, and a low return on those investments. This poster will focus on the cost of urban sprawl, and the benefits of developing a strategy to mitigate sprawl and sprawl related externalities in Ada/Canyon counties.
