Ohio: Are Growth Controls Too Restrictive?

Samuel Staley and Matthew Hisrich argue that while Ohio can't ignore growth, it also should not make growth controls too restrictive.

"While defining urban sprawl is an apparent inconvenience, growth control advocates are usually much more upfront about what they want to do: restrict housing choice and population growth through housing moratoria, urban-growth boundaries, large-lot zoning, and farmland preservation ordinances."
