I agree that the overwhelming single family zoning suburb model is ugly, and anti-community.
I would much prefer a mixed use zoning going back to a traditional neighborhood model, which stimulates and facilitates stronger community ties. The only issue I have is ceding control to the federal government, though a local tyrant is the same if they behave in the same way.
Urban sprawl and strict zoning laws destroy our respect for tradition, waste taxpayer money, and hurt our sense of local community.
