Pre-Zoning Cities More Sustainable
A study cited by the Colorado Independent revealed that cities established and primarily developed before the advent of modern zoning codes are more sustainable environmentally and otherwise, than those build after World War II when zoning was a powerful force guiding development. Denver, an older city designed to a great extent in the steam and street car suburb era, ranks 11th in sustainability among major cities.
