  • Descrição: In 1997, the Journal of the American Planning Association published a pair of point-counterpoint articles now listed by the American Planning Association as "classics" in the urban planning literature. In the first article, "Are Compact Cities Desirable?" Gordon and Richardson argued in favor of urban sprawl as a benign response to consumer preferences. In the counterpoint article, "Is Los Angeles-Style Sprawl Desirable?" Ewing argued for compact cities as an alternative to sprawl. It is time to reprise the debate. This article summarizes the literature on urban sprawl characteristics and measurements, causes, impacts, and remedies since the original debate. Reprinted by permission of Sage Publications, Inc.
