Dayton should be the capital of redundancy. We’ve got more “regional cooperation” taskforces, working groups, coalitions etc. soadd another on the the list: Grassroots Greater Dayton. Founded by activist Jean Woodhull, they are looking for ways to achieve “balanced development” and fight sprawl. Simply put, we’re building new houses for no new people at a rate that isn’t sustainable. Quite frankly, these pop up communitites in former corn fields scare me, because one day- we may actually need to grow food again (imagine that).
They are having a meeting June 22nd, 2006 at Panera Bread on Brown street from 5:30 to 6:30. I’m going to try to attend- and suggest you do too.
