Prefer their homes to be near their jobs •  :We need to end sprawling development patterns If a student released Wednesday by a nonprofit that promotes in-fill development pans out, living in the eight counties of the San Joaquin could look surprisingly different by mid-century.

I want my neighborhood to be walkable but my 4000 sqft single story SFR to be on at LEAST a three acres of private land. A man needs his privacy after all. So I'm afraid its tiny stacked condos force everyone else...

This will disappear as a trend when people realize they need arable land for yams that they can defend with limited ordnance.

What, they don't like the "runnable neighborhoods" where you have to keep moving fast to avoid the knifers and muggers?

Typical California ingrates.

The whole "walkable neighborhood" thing seems like a fad. Once you've been to the local bars and restaurants so many times and put up with your annoying neighbors above, below, and to either side of you for so long, you will be desperate for a house on a nice sized lot with space and privacy, which you aren't going to find in a "walkable neighborhood".
