Is Sprawl the Enemy?

I wonder if this has any implications for our Church in the suburbs? The video is a bit alarmist, but it would be great to have a true “neighbourhood”. One of the frustrating things for me about the box store environment is that there is no real provision for pedestrians or bikes – yet there are huge housing developments within a ten minute walking distance. Could Wavelerly West with their “town centre” concept be more on the right track – if it gets there? How could our Church design our property to be more attractive to pedestrians?
