SG-W:/ Detroit News on sprawl and smart growth



The Detroit News has published another sensational series of stories 
on sprawl and smart growth by John Bebow in today's paper.  You can 
read about long-standing and successful farmland preservation and 
smart growth programs in Maryland and Pennsylvania at

http://www.detnews.com/specialreports/2002/sprawl/.

In a companion piece, the News reports that Governor-Elect Granholm 
is beginning to hone her plans for land use reforms.  Among the 
proposals she's now touting is a plan to fund PDR-based farmland 
preservation programs through an expanded Bottle Bill.
