Abstract: Increasing land development densities and reducing suburban sprawl is frequently considered as a tool to reduce vehicle miles of travel and resultant air pollution emissions. Two studies conducted in 1979 and 1990 suggest that such strategies may have little effect on air quality. Only when considered over very long periods of time, is the incremental growth which can be redistributed of sufficient magnitude to overcome the effects of existing in place development.
