Benefits of Going Green
According to Joe Cortright, going 'Green' is a combination of extensive mass transit and land use regulation that limits urban sprawl and concentrates development.
Cortright says his study shows that young people are increasingly moving to urban areas, where they don't have to drive two miles to get a gallon of milk on a Sunday morning. Cortright acknowleged that housing price tend to rise when development is prohibited in outlying areas, but he says that is offset by lower transportation costs.
