In describing a city where a person lives: "The city is not congested, but very peaceful and spread out." The meaning here is that there is more open space than one would find in a large metropolitan city, the buildings are not too close together, etc.
Explanation: le sens littéral de "étendu" ne me semble pas convenir ici, car si l'on pense à Mexico, par exemple, c'est une ville très étendue mais pas du tout "aérée", ce que la deuxième phrase du texte semble indiquer.
