  1. Actually I think it requires limiting population density. As small town America disappears/has disappeared, we should plan “its”, restoration. We clearly see the environmental, social, and economic impacts, throughout the world and history from high density. High density equals more, and higher costs for everything, including the environment. Your thoughts?

  2. I thought at first you were talking about limiting population, not density. That might be good for the environment, but I’ve not heard of a reasonable way to do that. Some people want to limit immigration from other countries, but that raises many other issues.

    But you are talking about limiting population density in some areas. That runs counter to the idea of converting as little land as possible from habitat to development. It’s a dilemma, but there is some indication that the younger generation prefers compact living if they have access to nearby parks, recreation and transportation.

    There are no easy answers that I have heard, and maybe low-density developments have a place in areas of Puget Sound that are not considered ecologically sensitive. Redeveloping small towns could make a lot of sense if it doesn’t result in long-distant commuting.

    Maybe somebody with expertise on this issue will weigh in.

  3. Too bad Kitsap county is just a mess of sprawl
    Something that will only increase once we site passenger ferries in areas where no one lives and everyone drives to.
