Saving the Suburbs

I'd say the planning battle the post-boomer population has to struggle with is: what do we do with the 'suburbs'? Specifically, what do we do with all that low-density, sprawling infrastructure we built in 'the good days' when it seemed we could consume without end? I'm not slagging suburbs at all.. building Yaletown straight out to Harrison isn't the answer either.

A series currently being posted in the New York Times mulls the question, and draws some interesting commentary.
