                                              1. I think that compact building design would benefit a community because it would allow for more space to be used for more green areas or allow for more land uses. In Richmond Hill currently space isn't that much of a problem but it could become a huge problem in the future like having to cut down more forests or get rid of parks to build on. We could avoid those problems if we were to use compact building design by doing things like building upwards, building town houses and wasting less space between buildings and roads.
                                                1. As an example Richmond Hill does not have as many high rise buildings and has more single detached homes that take up a lot of space but if we were to build up wards like in downtown Toronto a lot of space would be saved. In the community though, many single detached homes are being built and you could see that the residential and commercial areas and spreading and expanding in Richmond hill and the surrounding communities because they are running out of space. Once we start running out of space, we might start cutting down forests, building on farmland or building on green spaces which would affect the sustainability of our community negatively
