Irving Yackness, representing the Building Industry
Association of Michigan, said Granholm's goals of
preserving agricultural land and open space can be met
by allowing higher-density developments.

The Building Industry Association is proposing
communities allow eight units per acre on 50 percent
of their land with access to water and sewer services,
and allow one unit per acre on land without water and
sewer services.

"We believe these objectives can be met by zoning for
higher density," Yackness said.
