I'm not an expert but I think reducing the permeable area is the major determinant, right? So the exurban roads and houses are bad but the lawns not as much.

Houston needs a rain tax like Maryland had.

That is an excellent idea!

This ProPublica article isn't bad, but it connects Houston's lack of zoning to sprawl when such lack slows sprawl. The problem is that nobody internalizes the positive externality. Either you draw a growth boundary or you, as you suggest, impose a rain tax.
