Wisdom from LongLegs

On this morning's walk, I realized that there's somethnig that, if not a contradiction, is at least an issue with regards to urban development. It's often said that private ownership of land, as opposed to rental, engenders greater personal investment in the community. At the same time, the development of urban sprawl is harmful to community and culture, leading to our empty car culture as well as environmental damage from lack of economy of scale of more centralised dwelling. Is there a way to reconcile these two suggestions? Are condos it?
