Sprawl does not occur because people dont care about
farmland, senior Naomi Sabel said. It happens because
land a mile down the road is one-thirtieth of the cost of land in
town. People dont build ugly houses that all look the same
because they have bad taste they do so because an ugly house
identical to all the others is usually the only financially feasible
choice. In general it doesnt pay to go green or go downtown.
