Isn’t that the goal – preventing urban sprawl? Leaving the country for true open space? In-filling the city to create or recapture neighborhoods?
Look at downtown. Isn’t that fabulous? It’s cleaned up, it’s fun, it’s a destination and a home, plus you can get there easily by mass transit, which works and is preferred in many places outside Texas, say New York, San Fran.
Wouldn’t you love to walk 2 blocks to work, get a bit of exercise & fresh air, say hi to friends along the way, save money on gas, save time for family…? And you could feel great about how your personal choices affect your carbon footprint and your body.
And ya know, if you really want a big yard, then you can have it. Eat your cake….
