Should More Development Be Allowed In Cleveland National Forest?

Just because one owns the land does not mean you can do what you want with it. That is what planning, land use laws and zoning are about. I have a house in a R1 zone in my city. I'm not allowed to build an apartment on it and certainly not some commercial development. There are country towns in the Forest where some development and higher density residency is OK. However, it's not appropriate to allow commercial development or density higher than what was established by the FCI which have been in place for the past 20 years. I have an obligation as a land owner in a residential community and land owners within a National Forest also have obligations to help keep the Forest as it is.

Greenhouse Gas Levels Approach 'Worrisome' Milestone

San Diego, home of R. Keeling, still has a regional transportation and land use plan which have GHG emissions exceeding State goals. Shame on our elected officials for not acting more responsibly.

Roundtable: SANDAG's Loss, Zombie Spending, Infrastructure Ideas, Oceanside Feud

SANDAG may say they are completing transit projects. However, they have not changed their funding allocations for projects or even consider alternative plans based on a re-allocation. Thus freeway projects are proceeding just as as they have 10, 20 years ago. We need SANDAG to change it's approach to transportation planning as well as to make transit first. People will take transit as well as walk and bike if we invest in building communities that are based on such forms of transportation. Ask anyone who is stuck in traffic, when gas costs $4 + a gallon, if they would like the option to take an fast, efficient transit system.

Anti-Sprawl Group Calls SD Transportation Plan 'Disastrous'

This is one of the most important issues in our region. However it is not being covered very much by our local media. Thank you Tom for interviewing Duncan who is not only knowledgeable about transit and local processes but is also driven to help our communities be healthier as well as economically viable. We need to implement more forward thinking ideas in our local planning like 50-10. I hope you continue to cover this issue and not let SANDAG continue to do what it has done in the past. Local cities and communities will want 50-10 if they find out what it is and how bad the other alternatives are.
Thank you KPBS
