It Ain't Even Close
Reflecting a powerful civic consensus for state action on sprawl, hundreds of citizens from across Michigan attended public hearings late last month and in overwhelming numbers urged the Michigan Land Use Leadership Council to take bold steps to rein in runaway patterns of development. Collectively, their comments formed a challenge to the cautious tone the council has so far displayed in its own public deliberations. The comments also revealed how isolated sprawl's proponents have become.
