All are good ideas, we could also make these non-habitable zones and prevent any further building.

Tough situation! But the population just keeps growing ~ and housing development just keeps growing too.

Greed seems to be in control with all of the new condos, houses and other living sites being build everywhere you look. I wish it would slow down. Thanks Cher

It would certainly slow down those people who rebuild on the same sot over and over after tornadoes ripped their other homes apart. Or the towns who keep rebuilding year after year on the same spots where they keep getting flooded out.

That's called moral hazards and we shouldn't make them easy to choose.
