Why Can't We Build Better Towns?
April 26th, 2022



Inspired by this awesome Climate Town video: The Suburbs are Bleeding America Dry. I recommend watching it if you want to learn more about this subject.

And here’s an article that my friend Tim Shores found, that gets into the problems with single-family zoning: It’s Time to End Single Family Zoning.


Comic Text
A lot of people are talking about sustainable urban development. So why aren’t we making progress? Well, a large portion of the land in the United States is zoned for single-family detached housing, which means it’s illegal to build anything besides inefficient, car-dependent suburban sprawl. Let’s change that!
