Yet another large city is deciding to implement a smart growth code, this time Boston.
Today, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council will unveil a new plan for growth and preservation in Greater Boston. The plan, called “MetroFuture,” was constructed with input from more than 5,000 residents and regional leaders. It calls for a new pattern of development based on “smart growth” - concentrating new homes and jobs near existing infrastructure, preserving farms and fields, and protecting air, water, and habitat.
I wonder when Miami 21 opponents will wake up. We need to implement our plan.
(PS. Dade county needs a similar complete code rewrite that addresses its sprawl DNA.)
