Utah has second fastest rate of urban sprawl
By Nicolas Walker -- Utah People's Post
A new study has found that Utah has the nation’s second-fastest rate of urban sprawl. The urban in Utah are moving to farmland and open space for new development, the study says.
According to the experts, this is the result of the fast growing population that is forcing people to leave the central urban areas.
The name of the study was “Vanishing Open Spaces: How an Exploding U.S. Population is Devouring the Land that Feeds and Nourishes Us.”
The study was conducted by the Numbers USA Education and Research Foundation, a sometimes-controversial group that promotes reduced immigration and studies effects of immigration and growth.
“There are all kinds of reasons why cropland is like sitting ducks waiting to be massacred and mowed down,” said Roy Beck, one of the authors of the study.
