Get this: The OneBayArea.org plan, a regional transportation and housing plan in the implementation stage NOW, aims to restrict the construction of all new residential units in the Bay Area along just a few ‘transportation corridors.’
Now, it doesn’t matter if there is actually a train, since we know there isn't enough money to build it. Just the expectation of the train is enough according to the Metropolitan Transportation District (MTC). The idea is that you can’t get public transportation cost effectively to the rural and suburban areas, therefore you need to move all of the people in to the city center.
The deal is that if cities in the Bay Area want any of the MTC transportation dollars in the next 25 years, the cities have to agree not to approve any residential development anywhere but in the redevelopment areas along train tracks and bus lines. That means high density condo development–vertical sprawl.
If you think this is a good thing take a look at where you’re living now. Are you in a condo next to the railroad tracks? With higher gas prices and VMT (vehicle miles traveled tax) coming your way, you’ll effectively be forced to take public transportation…even when there isn’t any. That’s the case with notSmart. You won’t be able to afford your car and your county roads won’t be paved out to your rural or suburban home. You’ll be moved into the vertical sprawl next to the tracks. This is UN Agenda 21.
This is a manipulation and a green mask for controlling where we live and how we live. By putting the greenhouse gas mask on it these regional boards can dictate who gets our tax money and keep pounding sand dollars down the rat hole of notSmart.
