Unit 8 Discussion: Urban Sprawl


Describe a city in the state of Georgia that has DECLINED in population. Make sure you name the city, describe it location in the state, and explain why its population has declined. Cite your references in MLA or APA format.

Now examine Atlanta whose population continues to grow and presents problems environmentally based upon its growth. Present a solution for the traffic congestion in Atlanta.  Critique the solution presented by at least TWO of your peers with whom you disagree and explain why to disagree with them in their post.

Compare and contrast the 2 cities (the one in which population is declining to Atlanta). Specifically address how areas in the same state (and probably not that far from one another) can be so dramatically different, as well as what primarily contributes to these differences.
