Cyburbia is a friendly big tent, where we share our experiences and thoughts about urban planning practice, the built environment, planning adjacent topics, and anything else that comes to mind. No ads, no spam, and it's free. It's easy to join!
I believe we had a discussion here of what constituted rural that while very confusing managed to come to almost no conclusion save that rural was what people felt it was. Not useful for planning definitions I fear. The point is where are you at? Urban and rural are probably going to be in part a definition of your area. Urban in a big city has a much different denisity and character than Urban in a farm community.
