Milpitas Post urges thoughtful planning
“A recent study completed by the Greenbelt Alliance suggests there is plenty of room to satisfy the growth demands without extending out the already urbanized areas.
The report is called “Grow Smart Bay Area” and it points out logically that better lifestyles can come about with neighborhoods that are within walking distance of schools, shopping and public transportation. At the same time there is much greater awareness of the wider national goals to reduce sprawl, gain energy independence (drive less), reduce the costlier extensions of city services, and conserve rather than expand utility infrastructure saving water and power.”
