My Brother on Exurban Development, on NPR

My brother, a land developer in the Philadelphia area, was featured in a National Public Radio report on Friday morning as part of a series on "The Urban Frontier" – The Exurbs: Houses, Cornfields, and Empty Lots [UPDATE: link fixed at 2:40pm.  I had originally inserted a link to next Sunday's Gospel text.  Oops!].  He did very well, and reporter Steve Inskeep offered a fairly balanced look at the issues involved in suburban development and the unique kind of development my brother and father offer – traditional neighborhood design, or new urbanism.

Take a listen!  For years I've been wanting to write a little piece about Traditional Neighborhood Design/New Urbanism from a Christian/Lutheran perspective.  Perhaps I'll start doing that on these pages in the coming days . . .
