Urban livability: Resist population growth

In “Walking the walk on urban livability” [Local News, Aug. 17], Matt Lerner says we must accommodate population growth by building cottages in our backyards, and getting out of our cars and onto our bicycles.

Instead, I say we must resist growth rather than accommodate it. The only people who benefit from population growth in already overcrowded urban areas are real-estate developers, tax collectors and professional scolds. For the rest of us, it just means more crowding, more traffic, more crime.
