Most of those neighbourhoods are quite compact, the opposite of sprawl, and within the urban growth boundary.

The Willoughby/Yorkson area along 208 street in actually becoming quite dense. Quite a number if mid-rise building and a lot of townhouse development. Even the single family homes are on relatively small lots. Currently 208 street is over capacity and will rmeain so until it is 4 laned from 72 ave north over Highway 1 into Walnut Grove. I believe the township is in the preliminary stages of twining the highway flyover. I live near this future interchange in Walnut Grove and cannot wait for its completion. There is a very vocal but small minority that is opposed to this project with every week/month coming up with a new objection as their previous objections have been proven to be unfounded. The people that I know that are very opposed to this have bought homes backing onto 216 street assuming that this project would never be completed. Now they are crying about their own lack of due diligence or hope that they could stop this. We refused to buy a home backing onto 216 about 6 years ago because all signs pointed to 216 becoming a 4 lane. You should search these project opponents argument's to see how ridiculous this has become.
