Bravo, Farmer. As I tried to argue to city council last summer, the agricultural plan, GRIDS, Vision 2020, Places to Grow, Gilbert's Peak Oil report, and Peter Ormond's Climate Change report all support the same essential goals for a vibrant city:

  1. Intensification - infill, adaptive reuse, redevelopment throughout the city
  2. Firm urban boundary and protection of local farmland
  3. Preserving urban heritage - the greenest building is the one already built
  4. Mixed use development - bring destinations together to reduce transportation costs
  5. Sustainable transportation modes - walking, cycling, transit, rail)
  6. Sustainable business development
  7. Energy production and conservation
