High Density Zoning

by dduringer,

While affordability is important, the health of Camas is also. For example, the high density development in Lookout Ridge is a concern. There are cars parked everywhere, including across the sidewalk and far away down the road. According to the following 2014 research by Tate Twinam, there is "a long tradition in the sociology literature of linking high densities to pathological behavior (Sampson 1983, Wirth 1938)." (https://www.k-state.edu/economics/seminars/papers/Twinam%20JMP.pdf). Balance is needed between affordability and livability. An ideologically founded policy of high density is not going to achieve that balance.
