Land Use Struggle at a Stalemate
"The city's economic future is likely to be shaped to an important extent by what happens to its 45 miles of shoreline property. From Miami to Boston, cities have used their extensive waterfronts to jump-start renewal and job growth....Some cast the debate as a struggle over the city's soul: blue-collar jobs vs. white-collar work and gracious living - the industrial port vs. the Digital Harbor....planning is crucial because a bad mix means conflicts, whether it's sailboats crossing major shipping lanes or warehouses surrounded by townhouses. And once industrial land is rezoned, especially for homes, it's not likely to go back."
