What's the problem? Looks good to me, lots of parkland, trails, and gridded streets.

You think water gets in the way? You should check out areas with lots of exposed rock.

Why is the grid more important than protecting our natural resources and preserving scenic beauty?

Flat as a pancake here. Most older parts of the city are a perfect grid aligned east / west. Then city designers got bored and started adding lots of crescent and unnecessary curved roads. And inexplicably this neighbourhood that looks like a limp penis: http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/50.4774/-104.6428

For the next wave of expansion they are looking to go back to a grid since its cheaper and they can squeeze in more houses.

Are you retarded?

The grid is also much nicer to navigate. Biking around eastern Regina is a bit of an adventure because you want to avoid the highly trafficked trunk routes but the non-trunk routes are almost all squiggly as fuck. On the grid, you can just go on a quiet parallel street to the busy streets.

I don't know where the three in the map view are but the one in the bottom left is clearly in suburbia. if you've ever been to florida you should know there's nothing beautiful about a swamp with a million model homes crammed onto the smallest plot they could manage. those "lakes" are fucking disgusting and the old people who live next to them just put blinds on their rear windows so they don't even have to look at them

Can confirm.
Florida's fake lakes are incredibly dirty.
