Vibrant towns or sprawl? Small town newsman (and Pulitzer Prize winner) Tom Hylton explores how America can save its cities, towns, and countryside. Save our Land, Save our Towns taps into a growing concern about sprawl among ordinary Americans. A poll by the Pew Centre for Civic Journalism recently found that sprawl ranks with crime, taxes, and education as the top concern of citizens across the country. We are frustrated with traffic congestion, angry about the loss of open space and perplexed by the decline of our cities. Many think sprawl is inevitable - it is not. This video is a story of hope - logical reasons why America's towns can be rebuilt and its countryside preserved from strip malls and subdivisions. This program is designed to be engaging and personal - a voyage of discovery.
