City council candidate advocates honoring growth boundary, preserving UTC beyond boundary; Seattle, WA; 3/26/09

Meet City Council candidate David Miller By Doree
“We have an urban village strategy in Seattle. Instead of allowing growth in every area, it’s going to happen here, here and here,” he says. “I think everybody agrees that urban sprawl is bad. The same thing is bad for intra-urban sprawl.” He says decreasing tree canopy and a less-than-comprehensive bus system make urban density difficult for many to swallow.
“Growth that happens within the urban village boundaries is responsible,” he says. “And growth that occurs outside that, especially with urban tree canopy, is irresponsible.”
