What is Urban City?

The increase of urban city, means that their are more shopping center, more business which attracts many people from other cities and it also helps the city as it get more taxes. As the Urban city develops it is usually very "together" crowed in which a person can just walk to the next store instead of driving 10 miles to get to store, which is use of fossil fuel and causes CO2 in the atmosphere.

Urban needs more Mixed-use development. Such as Office, Retail, and Housing or condo. Need public school near your house, without driving very far.

Most Urban cities had transportation. Such as subway, light rail, bus, and monorail. It's more easier than driving and wasting gas.
