Enviros and Builders Join to Oppose Cupertino Growth Measures

In Cupertino, CA, dogs and cats, living together... mass hysteria! This piece is written from a very pro-smart growth slant, but it's a good example of where the smart growth crowd and the free market & development crowds can come together to agree on what makes bad policy. Density limits and building height/setback mandates are artificial, counterproductive policy mechanisms that prevent the market from responding to changing consumer demand by limiting the ability of developers to produce innovative designs.
