Sprawl

Robert Bruegmann is interviewed by USNews:
"Sprawl is a loaded word. How do you define it?

I try to define the word in the most objective way possible, as relatively low-density settlement without any overarching master planning."
Is this a good definition? Do you agree that this definition is the most objective definition we can find?

I think the entire interview is worth reading.

Comments:
Since the term "urban sprawl" is a political term, it only makes sense to me that it would be difficult if not impossible to reach an objective definition. Politicians will always try and define a word (or group of words) as to fit their political ends. As far as objective goes.......NOT!!!
