Why Sprawl Is A Conservative Issue

Michael E Lewyn, Florida Coastal School of Law


This speech argued that conservatives should fight sprawl as a threat to conservative values such as limited government, freedom, lower taxes, and social stability. I explained how sprawl is the direct result of big government, education policies, and housing regulations that still favor suburban construction on previously undeveloped land. He will also discusses policies that could limit or mitigate sprawl and yet be consistent with conservative and libertarian values such as individual choice and free market activity.
