The continued outward spread of development and sprawl threatens the few wild places that remain. The decentralized nature of our communities increases transportation impacts and pollution. As flat, easy-to-build-on land diminishes, more and more development tends to occur in sensitive areas that are easily harmed or destroyed. It is important to consider environmentally sound landscapes that benefit people, wildlife and a region like the Chesapeake Bay.
