CONNECTIONS: When one door opens, another closes
If change is inevitable, how do we preserve? If preservation is desirable, how do we progress?. Make no mistake, land use is a trade-off.

If land is more expensive, keeping moderate-priced housing available or building affordable housing is more difficult. Some of us support both land conservation and affordable housing without realizing that protecting land makes the remaining land too expensive to develop at an affordable price.
