The Road To Sprawlville Is, Well, A Private Road: Chapter IX

This installment of our ongoing series, The Road To Sprawlville, is about the unintended consequences of plopping a house here, and a house there, on large lot.

The opposite of that curse, urban density!

Turns out over in Germantown that when you restrict lots size to five acres, so few properties are built and so few tax dollars collected that private roads to the houses are the only way to provide them.

Interesting story in the Daily Reporter.
