Skip to comments.California Declares War on Suburbia, Planners want to herd millions into densely packed corridors
Posted on 04/13/2012 4:03:19 AM PDT by opentalk
It's no secret that California's regulatory and tax climate is driving business investment to other states. California's high cost of living also is driving people away. Since 2000 more than 1.6 million people have fled, and my own research as well as that of others points to high housing prices as the principal factor.
The exodus is likely to accelerate. California has declared war on the most popular housing choice, the single family, detached homeall in the name of saving the planet.
Metropolitan area governments are adopting plans that would require most new housing to be built at 20 or more to the acre, which is at least five times the traditional quarter acre per house. State and regional planners also seek to radically restructure urban areas, forcing much of the new hyperdensity development into narrowly confined corridors.

WHY would anyone willingly live in Kalefornia?
Best thing they could for existing home prices.
Damn, sorry about the multiple posts.

It happens to all of us. I wish there was a way to prevent it.
Good question. You couldn’t give me all the gold in Ft. Knox to move to California.
Yeah, let’s see them start with the limousine liberals in Beverly Hills and Malibu if they’re really serious about that crap.

Difficult to prevent, but ya can correct it by clicking “Abuse” on the duplicate posts and asking the Mod to remove them ...
A major problem with high density housing is the spread of minor diseases and health problems. Also, there will be more neighbor-to-neighbor clashes of egos and annoyances.
This may be environmentally friendly, but it will be human deadly.
As Kalifornia goes, the couintry goes. Look around - we’re a bit slower than Kalifornia in getting there, but we’re all heading to the same place.
Agenda 21 Ping
Too bad the lefties have a solid grip on the state. There would be parts of Cali that I wouldnt mind living but it would have to be far from the crazy crowd.
Sounds like you did it right and stayed out of the cities.
At 20 housing units per acre (with 640 acres in a square mile), this means each housing unit will be 2112.5 square feet or roughly 46ftx46ft without space between units. If we were to assume 8ft between units this means you get to live in a house 38ft x 38ft and still have no place to park your car.
These planners (read communists) will probably want high rise though.
Concentrating the population into small areas while leaving large swaths of the country 'pristine' is all part of the UN's Agenda 21.
The environmentalist goals include atmospheric protection, combating pollution, protecting fragile environments, and conserving biological diversity. Agenda 21 goes well beyond environmentalism. Other broad goals include combating poverty, changing consumption patterns, promoting health, and reducing private property ownership, single-family homes, private car ownership, and privately owned farms.

Already done. Warsaw 1939.
