Another hot air balloon goes up for high density vertical sprawl and ‘vision’. These guys need glasses, their vision is a nightmare that they think they have the power to impose on us.
Duany is a guy who created an ‘institute’ and then gave himself credentials from it. He ran around and got in front of the environmental movement so that he could get work as an architect. All it took was saying that everything you already have is bad, and all the new stuff will be green.
Green. Is that all you have to say in Sonoma County and everyone salivates like Pavlov’s dog? What’s so green about taking existing buildings down and dumping them in a landfill?
Orin Thessen’s ‘vision’ for Windsor included duping old ladies out of their money so that he could build some failed fake Disneyland idea of a main street. And then go bankrupt. Alan Strachan, visionary, ha, bankrupt on that Courtside Village new urbanism junk over on Sebastopol Road. Now he’s reinvented himself as a Green Loan banker.
MacKenzie is a menace and a danger to all of us. We can’t afford these visions, both environmentally and financially.
This is the United Nations Agenda 21/Sustainable Development machine. A manipulation, crafted so that if you object to it you are somehow a bad person who would drill oil wells in your grandma’s living room.
What a PR triumph. Wake up. Google: Stop UN Agenda 21.
