Mega-Regions: Urban Form, Transportation,and Sustainability
Activity Code: S502
Date: Sunday, April 14
The debate is on! How much impact do land use and urban form have on sustainability outcomes? Review the 2012 JAPA article, “Growing Cities Sustainably,” that argues that urban form has marginal impact on sustainability and examine some climate action plans that assume this linkage is pivotal. What light can statewide transportation/land use scenarios shed on this controversy? Consider studies from Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic Mega-Region as you weigh in on this debate.
