Very lucky. |
with a fenced in yard, and yet the house has a walk score of 100 and is 5 miles from the core of downtown. Mind you, my house is insanely expensive and priced out for most people.
I like the space, larger houses, and quiet nature of the suburbs (which is where we live). At the same time, I do wish the area was more walkable and had more transit options. I don't necessarily like driving, but I'd have to drive to get to the closest bus stop. There would be a commuter rail stop 5 miles from my house if the NIMBYs in the lake towns to the North of Charlotte didn't think it would bring "undesirables" to their area.
I don't know what the answer is, but I assume there is a scenario where you can have both. You can have yard and a larger house, with good access to public transportation and walkable districts. Your municipality just has to prioritize it, which to this point ours has prioritized rubber stamping development without taking these other things into account. It's one reason I can't wait to vote against him in November.
