AND ITS ISSUES by:ILAN

SUBURBAN SPRAWL #1

The suburban sprawl is all around us its the pollution in the air the homes we live in the jobs we go to the schools we learn at the cars we drive the streets we walk on the markets we buy our foods all of these have something to do with suburban sprawl

ARTICLE #2

the suburban sprawl could be good and could be bad. The good things are that we have homes to sleep in, food to buy at stores, and cars to drive. But the bad things are that we causing taxes to go up, and we are destroying the environment and wildlife.

2 MAIN ISSUES

suburban sprawl first issue is that every single green organism that lives is being destroyed by traffic, streets,homes and etc. another issue is that it is polluting our environment raising our taxes and an impact on population growth

NEGATIVE EFFECT ON ENVIRONMENT

Increased Air Pollution, Water Overconsumption, Loss of Wildlife Habitat, these are all the things that suburban sprawl is hurting our environment

MAIN REGIONS AFFECTED

the whole half of north america is affected by this issue because every body has streets and homes and cars and all of these things have something to do with suburban sprawl

WILD LIFE ISSUES

A new study finds runaway sprawl in many metropolitan areas is wiping out essential wildlife habitat for some 1,200 imperiled species and could doom some to extinction

HOW WILD LIFE IS AFFECTED

wild lifes are being affected by all the houses getting put in over forest so the animals have to move out of the way and find a different home then all of the pollution is starting to get wild life sick and is causing a decrease of wild life and eventually they will be extinct

AFFECTING LEAGUE CITY

suburban sprawl has all ready effected league city in many different ways. The new bulidings that are being built, new homes, destroying more plants and trees all of these different causes are effecting league city

EFFECTS ON PEOPLE

people arent as much effected by this than wildlife. The only non-serious matter is that taxes are being raised because of all the school fundings and homes that are being built

CAUSES TO THE ISSUE

We started all of this by building more homes and streets and schools and supermarkets we are the ones that started suburban sprawl by not doing our job and taking care of our citys and environments.

SOLUTIONS

Working to keep enough attractive, affordable, updated housing choices within the already developed area

• Creating a real sense of place, a sense of being somewhere unique and interesting, everywhere in the existing metropolitan area

• Assuring that development is spread out fairly metropolitan-wide

• Enacting laws or voluntary agreements to provide that tax incentives given by one suburb do not penalize other suburbs or the central city

• Make available quality walking and biking facilities for transportation, and also public transit

• Use zoning and other land use regulations to create development patterns that makes active transportation, in the form of walking and cycling, practical for the shortest of trips

• Preserve pristine open space within a short drive from the central city, without the intrusion of suburban-style developments into that area

• Strengthen the ability of existing suburbs to govern themselves well and to survive financially

• Eliminate the environmentally wasteful practice of tearing down older buildings and starting over, except when buildings have been allowed to deteriorate to the point that demolition is justified and even the best solution

NEW SOLUTIONS

i think that we cut down on houses and super markets and stop causing so much pollution in the air and stop destroying wildlife. those are my soultions.
