I did a paper awhile back (which I am now revising) that was supposed to be an essay about something you have a strong belief about. We were supposed to give our side as well as the opposing side. I got a good score on the paper, but I had a few points taken off for "the opposing side being underdeveloped". I had to reach hard to find anything good about suburban development (lol) so I admit that it could use more content. I'll post my original paragraph below and if anyone can give me some ideas of what I could add, I would really appreciate it:
Please feel free to add anything I should include in this paragraph. It doesn't have to necessarily be something that you agree with, it just has to be something that is given from the other side.Many would argue that the current trends of suburban development do have advantages. For one, housing in these areas is generally affordable by the average person. The can also be built very quickly to accommodate the influx of population into rapidly growing metropolitan areas. Also, the "pod" style development is great for statistical purposes. It is very easy to find out the income and population of an area when all the houses are of similar size and the residents are of similar income. This would be much more difficult in a mixed-use development.
