Stop Sprawl
Sprawl Costs Us All

Acknowledgements

The first "Sprawl Costs Us All" report was written in 1996 by Brett Hulsey and the Sierra Club Midwest Office. Chapters and field offices in Arizona, Colorado, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Mexico, Tennessee, the Midwest and Virginia have since also written sprawl reports.

We wish to thank all of the chapters and activists who wrote these reports -- without their work, this report would not be possible.

Thanks also to Miriam Axel-Lute (National Housing Institute), Kendra Briechle (International City-County Management Association), Denny Johnson (American Planning Association), Greg LeRoy (Good Jobs First) and Fritz Plous (citizen activist) for their research assistance. Thanks also to the American Farmland Trust and Robert Burchell for their work on the costs of sprawl.
