A front page story in Friday’s Trib suggests that high-density housing in the central city is a bad idea because it puts concentrations of population near freeways and their pollution.
So what’s the alternative? Push everyone out to the suburbs and leave the city for those too poor to have a choice? That will only drive up VMT and require more freeways. Not the future I want to see for our region!
I have a better idea. Let’s keep cities for people and clean up the emissions from those cars!
