Sprawl in the Western Reserve

David Beach  |  11/14/07 @ 4:50pm

Even though we aren't growing much in Northeast Ohio, we are consuming land at a rapid rate as new communities are developed at the edges of the metropolitan area. This outward expansion of development occurs gradually, subdivision by subdivision, so it's often hard to appreciate the magnitude of the change.

To help you understand the extent of this land-use transformation, we have prepared a time series of maps showing the sprawl of developed land in the Western Reserve. Take a look here, then think about the implications of such growth patterns for the communities of the region.
