The Emerging Fringe Bias

Steve Layman's latest blog on commercial development celebrates the idea that the "metropolitan fringe" will continue to see commercial and residential growth for the next twenty years.

I join Steve in being thrilled to see authors and thinkers who reverse the urban bias permeating certain corners of our nation and state.

Despite all the "smart growth" advocacy for denser highways, denser schools, and denser living places to the contrary, the thinking remains strong that real life, in Ohio and elsewhere, won't go for it.  No one can be that dense.

It's time for the "fringe" bias to earn back a little policy turf.
