Urban Sprawl

The Scripps Phase II Biotech City plans to introduce the following into an already congested area:

  • 500,000 square feet of strip malls and urban sprawl.
  • 2,700 unnecessary residential units.
  • A new animal testing lab.
  • An inevitable increase in CO2 and other pollutants from the hundreds of cars that would now be using the area.

“Will urban sprawl spread so far that most people lose all touch with nature? Will the day come when the only bird a typical American child ever sees is a canary in a pet shop window? When the only wild animal he knows is a rat – glimpsed on a night drive through some city slum? When the only tree he touches is the cleverly fabricated plastic evergreen that shades his gifts on Christmas morning?” – Frank N. Ikard, North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference, Houston, March 1968.
