we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present
delight or for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendents
will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone,
that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because
our hands have touched them, and that men will say as they look
upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our
fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819-1900)
believe that land-use issues should be guided by a set of smart-growth
principles that incorporate centralized development, protection
of natural resources and our working landscape, development of transportation
options, and healthy neighborhoods where we can walk or bike to
our destinations and have ready access to recreation"
