Portland, Oregon is a leader in controlling sprawl. The state of Oregon has an urban growth boundary law which limits growth outside of city limits. This promotes upward growth, which saves on infrastructure and protects open spaces. One of the main problems with sprawl is the emissions from people driving everywhere because nothing is nearby, or near enough to walk to. Portland is also a leader in mass transit, which allows people to leave cars at home.
