The Venus Project - Cities

70
00:04:08,261 --> 00:04:11,480
When the city hits a certain number of people,

71
00:04:12,099 --> 00:04:15,534
we stop the development, and let everything go back to nature

72
00:04:15,674 --> 00:04:18,569
between this and the next city.

When Jacque says "let everything go back to nature" does that mean the city will be allowed to have grass and trees grow over it once a larger city is built?

we stop the development, and let everything go back to nature between this and the next city.


I may be mistaken, but the confusion seems to be caused by the rest of the statement being in a different string.
Taken as a single line, it's much easier to see that he's talking specifically about allowing the space between fully developed cities to 'go back to nature'. So, the impression this now gives is one where city development continues until the population reaches the point of 'optimum sustainability'. At that point, that particular city will no longer have be expanded, allowing the surrounding landscape to remain or return to 'the wild' (with the likely exception of transportation enablers like elevated high-speed monorail tracks & mag-lev tubes that are installed between neighboring cities).

That is what I'd understood. However, I'd never thought there would be anything much apart from nature between the cities anyway.
So the next question is; what will there be between the cities, apart from transport systems of course?

He is basically confirming what you already understand for those who are just learning about it.

I suppose he says that because while the development is in progress, certain areas outside the city boundaries may become part of the construction site, but once development is finished, those areas are given back to nature.
