      MTC Transportation Headlines linked to a duplicate of this article today.  It's a summary of a study titled "Causes of Sprawl: A Portrait from Space" by researchers at the University of Toronto.  The article states that scattered urban/suburban development generally did not become more scattered between 1976 and 1992 and happens more often in areas with easy groundwater access, temperate climates, developable hilltops (with corresponding difficult-to-develop hillsides), and greater development subsidies (e.g., for sewers, police coverage, and other public services).  The authors say roads and number of local jurisdictions do not have a relationship to scatteredness.
