Controlling Urban (Or Surban) Sprawl

What is the issue about?

Urbanization dominating our rural land use. We're causing negative impacts to the environment. We need to minimize negative impacts of urban sprawl while still be able to manage residential, commercial, industrial and other communities services.

How can this issue be solved?

Balance Industries & Local Markets?

Stop overusing industries and start using more of local markets. Don't shut down Commercial and Industrial land use but instead stop with urban sprawl. Our population is very high, so we must add more houses. We could add apartments to save a lot of our precious land. People may not like the small space, but we have to do it to be sustainable. We could build apartments with only penthouses for people to live with a large area.

Conclusion

Bring back Agricultural land. Start consuming foods only from local markets. Promote farms, not factories. Use factories for productions of cloths and other merchandises, not food. We need to protect our "precious" land to secure our foods and stay sustainable.
