E-M:/ "Task force adresses land use"




Lansing- 

Sighting dramatic statistics such as Michigans loss of 10 acres of farmland
per hour and the fact that Michigans development is growing five times
faster than its population, Representatives Chris Kolb and Patricia Lockwood
set the stage to release the "House Democratic Land Use task Force Report."
The Report mentions over 30 smart growth policy suggestions that will
encourage sustainable development, preserve farmland, protect natural areas,
and promote public transportation 

The report can be downloaded at

The Lansing State Journal also ran a story covering the report in today
