Subject: Re: [CPEO-BIF] Urban Growth Boundaries
True enough.  The question becomes to what degree -- especially in relation
other factors -- an Urban Growth Boundary impacts housing
availability/costs.  Additionally, it's a question of justice.  Can the
acknowledged environmental benefits of an artificial restraint on growth be
delivered in a manner that does differentially, negatively impact low income
communities and communities of color?  I say that they can, if and only if
those communities are empowered to access and impact growth mgmt
decisionmaking.  Finally, we must recall the environmental justice impacts
of sprawl: the flight of resources, economic opportunity, and environmental
quality to the surburban fringe -- leaving behind the concentrations of
poverty so often present in our inner cities.
