FitzPatrick, Malcolm S.


The development of land in America has gone unregulated for decades. The country was developed without concerns for the future of the land or the environment. Many still consider a design method for development is not necessary. In order to help future development, it is necessary to create a method that is more efficient and environmentally friendly than the sprawl of today. A sustainable growth pattern must be employed if we want to ensure a high quality of life for years to come.
