Poudre Canyon Group Sprawl Campaign
Communities across the nation continue to wrestle with the issue of sprawl and poorly-planned growth. In early 2000, the Poudre Canyon Group released a landmark report entitled Sprawl Costs Us All: The Impacts of Growth and Sprawl on Colorado's Northern Front Range. The report details the rate at which we are growing, the impacts that growth and sprawl are having on our quality of life, and possible solutions.
