"Cookie Cutter" towns make me think of places that appear uniform, but, as with all places, are home to a bunch of individuals who are all different, even if they are of similar ethnicity and political leanings.

Cookie cutter places aren't as bad as people make them out to be.

Cookie-cutter style is repetitive and monotonous...it can be high density, low density, or somewhere in between.

Suburbs that are good examples of cookie-cutter development are located outside of Las Vegas and Phoenix. Phoenix' suburbs have almost endless clusters of look-alike homes stretching for miles. Mesa, Chandler, Peoria, Gilbert, etc., are prime examples.
Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, and LA have significant suburbia cookie-cutter development also.
