The Sky Method is built upon an ancient method of growth. This is the Tuscan hill-town of Pienza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It grew from what we today would call a "large-lot subdivision of 11 mini-farms" sitting on 11 acres to a town of about 1,500 people, but still sitting on those same 11 acres, not including a 19th-century suburb. It did so by a process of countless incremental divisions, much like cell divisions in a living creature as it grows. So while the core growth process of the Sky Method dates to earliest civilization, it packages that process in precidtability tools like the Transect to make it acceptable to modern development.
The key to the #SkyMethod is the #Transect, which gives a plan predictability of character even if the final lot lines might not be laid out for generations. Because what people are really objecting to is regrettable development character.
