Urban sprawl remains a problem in Fresno

A series by Brad Branan of The Fresno Bee looks at problems with how the city of Fresno, Calif. regulates development. Despite a plan to curb urban sprawl, it continues to plague the area leading to some of the country's worst air quality and the most concentrated poverty in the nation. Lawsuits filed under the California Environmental Quality Act have accused the city of "failing to fully consider air pollution, traffic, historic buildings and other factors when approving development." Since 2005, the city has only won one of 10 actions filed against it.  Of the other nine actions, the city lost three and settled six of the cases.
