John Thaxton has written an excellent op-ed piece in today's SHT. The subject is how the "smart growth" label is often used incorrectly and the result is more sprawl.
He concludes with the following thought provoking summary:
Smart Growth should be the way we build new development, not the reason. "Smart Growth" in the wrong location, or done without a financially feasible infrastructure plan, is nothing more than dumb growth with a smart name.
