A Tale of Three Cities

May 20, 2010

A recent study from the Neptis Foundation, titled “Growing Cities,”  examines the very different trends in city planning and growth in Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary. Vancouver is touted as the densest city with the least urban sprawl, thanks in part to proactive city planning in the 1960s and 70s. Calgary has the highest degree of urban sprawl, largely due to the ease with which sprawl can occur into prarie land.
