Urban Sprawl

6 posts in this topic


Then, of course, you raise the question, where do all of the people go who have had their homes bought from them? AFter having recieved money for their property they will have a nice down payment for a new home in the newer, middle income housing in the suburbs. Which would create growth healthy growth in the city and in the suburbs.

This is a plan that requires long term vision, but in 20 years Memphis could be transformed into a city with nothing buy new subdivisions everywhere.

The term "urban sprawl" is an oxymoron. There is no such thing. By its very nature (by design), an urban development doesn't sprawl, and multiple urban developments don't sprawl in relation to each other. The term to use is "suburban sprawl."

How would that change anything?

It sounds like people presently living in the innercity would move to the suburbs, while people presently living in the suburbs would move to the innercity.
