I try to be a somewhat well-informed planner *snort* and since the APA is pushing their Smart Growth Policy, I attempted to read some of the literature. Needless to say, I was rendered comatose and may have been legally brain dead for a couple of minutes. Many of my local colleagues feel the same way, so I was wondering about the rest of you planners in, perhaps, more progressive planning states or places where growth is actually a problem and not a need like in LA.
