How Much Room For Green When Building The American Dream?
"The greater Washington region lost nearly half as much green space to development from 1986 to 2000 as it did in its entire prior history, according to a soon-to-be-released study. Each day, 28 to 43 square miles of green space in the region are overtaken by the builder's bulldozer, say the authors of the study, co-sponsored by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments and the National Park Service. (Note: a correction published in the Post today said that "acres" not "square miles" should have been used in the headline and text.)
