Yea.........Agenda 21 stuff. I went to their website. Its the “New Urbanist” dream of everyone rides a bicycle and real estate in the core is unbelievably expensive so the proletariat workers have to spend an hour or more on a bus to a 600 square ft apt. that costs $1,000.00 a month 60 miles from the elitist haven of the “Urban” scape. In sum: Portland Oregon.
In the new normal of no middle class and no prosperity where the best job anyone can find is serving coffee at Starbucks, I guess it will somehow work out.
Perhaps their are 2 different solutions: the city warrens we hear about, with lots of homes close together (like 'projects'?), but also the rural solution -- homes on main roads with wells and and septic systems (or outhouses?!?), so the infrastructure is small and sustainable.
Well, if we are robbing Peter to pay Paul for 60+ years what we have been doing is not sustainable.
Why do you think so many cities are going broke?
Seems like our developments have been Ponzi schemes since just after WWII
