    [3] Although the anti-sprawl position has considerable appeal, defenders of sprawl dispute the arguments that sprawl threatens natural resources and creates higher government costs, and deny that it is a serious social problem.

Urban form, the law, and health are undoubtedly linked. However, nonlegal factors such as 20th-century reliance on the automobile as well as associated governmental actions and private investment. Land-use planning is the process of regulating the use of land in an effort to promote more desirable social and environmental outcomes as well as a more efficient use of resources.

Goals of land use planning may include environmental conservation, restraint of urban sprawl, minimization of transport costs, prevention of land use conflicts, and a reduction in exposure to pollutants. THE NEED FOR PLANNING. Early American cities were relatively compact by today’s standards.

Their land areas were limited primarily by how far people could walk in going about their daily activities. As time progressed, urban populations surged due to industrialization and immigration. As city centers became overcrowded, housing conditions. - The containment of urban sprawl and suburbanisation beyond the urban limits; and - Discouraging decentralisation which disperses employment-generating activities, except in specific cases where it is favourable in terms of decreasing total transportation costs and travel times on the basis of an integrated land use plan (Wilkinson, ).

Government policies, economic growth, transportation, cultural issues, and poor planning drive urban sprawl. About half of urban sprawl can be attributed to increased population in urban areas.

In suburbs, residential development generally focuses on single-family dwelling, often situated in large lots. In this course, we will study state and local politics with special attention to issues of the built environment. Through consideration of urban land use issues, the following general topics will be addressed: the place of cities in intergovernmental systems; patterns of interest group dominance in state and local affairs; the challenge of integrating neighborhood.

That argument: that places should be unique and reflect the identity of the people who live there instead of places answering to lofty academic principles of homogeneity is a fundamental core of urban design. Throughout this book, Jacobs uses her own neighborhood, Greenwich Village, as a model for a healthy and active neighborhood.

The US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has developed a comprehensive set of year, national goals and objectives for improving the health of all Americans (DHHS, a).These goals and objectives, collectively called Healthy Peoplefocus on those actions and issues that could have the most positive influence on improving public health.
