Traditional right/left dichotomies don't fit municipal politics very well. Not that they fit other kinds of politics well either, but the added element of local, personal politics tends to make such one-dimensional oversimplifications totally unworkable. The same is true (in very different ways) with small-town politics.

The kind of anti-urban sentiment quoted above can just as easily come from middle-class suburban liberals as hardened conservatives. A quick look at Communist city planning shows many of the same problems with utterly dehumanizing streetscapes. On the other hand, all three groups boast others who are staunch advocates for vibrant city fabrics. Every group on the political (and geographic) map is divided on the issue.
