Subject: Re[2]: [CPEO-BIF] Urban Growth Boundaries

Original message from Brock.Martha@epamail.epa.gov

I posted a note recently about how we mustn't overlook the impact on Smart
Growth of the basic underlying premise that growth is good.  The
conversation on Urban Growth Boundaries is, I believe, a perfect example of
this impact.  How about including control on population  growth as part of
the solution.  No, it isn't a quick fix, but we MUST deal with it.  We will
continue to reap what we sow.  If continue to sow population growth at
rates which outstrip our ability to take care of all of us, whether the
issues implicated are clean air, infrastructure capable of handling our
needs for clean water and  sewage management, quality of life or affordable
housing, there will be no solution. How we divy up limited space will
continue to engender these problems and more problems than we Americans are
accustomed to living with, but which many other cultures, sadly, live with
every  day.
