Who says we want high-density housing?

An editorial in Tuesday's Press Democrat (8/3, "Balancing act") said, in recommending approval of the Creekside Village project adjacent to St. Eugene's Cathedral,

"Yes, the project will put more cars onto busy Montgomery Drive--but through a variety of public policy decisions (including urban growth boundaries) Santa Rosa residents have made high-density housing a priority, even when it means traffic inconveniences."


The local developers, City Hall, and the PD keep arguing that if the public doesn't want perpetual urban sprawl, we must want all the proposed future growth to be within the city limits, high-rise, and high-density

In fact, Santa Rosa residents have said time and time again that we don't want the damned growth and its impacts at all!
