Survey shows Americans want more walkable communities

Smart Growth America, in conjunction with National Association of Realtors, released its 2007 Growth and Transportation Survey detailing how Americans view development and its effects in their communities. Americans noted concern over their local leaders’ ability to provide practical transportation solutions and manage growth and development. Other issues included loss of farmland, increased traffic congestion and commute times, and loss of open land. Ninety percent of respondents critiqued the auto-centric model of urban planning, voicing that new communities should be designed so that residents can walk more and drive less.
