"Smart Growth" and "New Urbanism" Compared with "Large Lot Zoning" (Tom Lane) [ Home Page – Click Here]

(May 17, 2017) – Traditional "Large Lot Zoning" is "Greener" than "Smart Growth" within Urban Growth Boundaries . . . Copyright 2009 – 2017 . . . Tom Lane . . . Photographing California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington.

(December 23, 2011) Editors and Publishers: Please Note Tom Lane / “Smart Growth USA” Web Site Ratings

(December 23, 2011, Tom Lane) Editors and publishers may wish to consider the high ratings of my web site.  I would be glad to publish an article or editorial on “smart growth” or “light rail” in your publication.

Note:  If you believe that UN Agenda 21 is responsible for smart growth, please do not contact me.  I do not share your conspiracy theory views that smart growth is a conspiracy from Agenda 21. Furthermore, while I am a conservative on fiscal issues, private property, and land use issues, I am pro-Israel, and pro-gay rights.  To me, smart growth is really bad design, and its a fad that will go away in a few decades.

Note: This is not a popularity contest, and is not about self-promotion.  Instead, since all bloggers and photographers want to make money, then Editors may wish to consider my high ratings.  They are competitive with those of noted anti-smart growth / anti-light rail WordPress blogger Randal O’Toole, and his blog entitle, “The Antiplanner,” http://ti.org/antiplanner

* For nearly all of calendar year 2011 (January 1, 2011 to December 23, 2011), noted author and speaker Randal O’Toole’s web site reports a total of 23,330 hits from unique ISP’s.

* For this same time, my web site  reports a total of 20,989 readers, from unique ISP’s, nearly tied.

See charts of these ratings from my site (Tom Lane) and The Antiplanner (Randal O’Toole) below.

Photo above: “Leapfrog Commuting” between Salem and Portland, Oregon, due to a failure to expand the Portland UGB, and only three lanes on I-5.  O’Toole is a specialist on Portland’s transportation and smart growth issues, whereas I cover Seattle issues (although we both travel to, but don’t live in these cities).

However, This is Not a Fair Comparison …

Randal O’Toole’s appearance on the Internet through his blog and other writings is legendary, with his extensively researched writings, with extensive bibliographies, and sense of humor.

However, a comparison of WordPress ratings per se is inaccurate.  O’Toole is MUCH more than a blogger.  He is also a prolific author and speaker, with his articles and books appearing on other web sites besides his own blog.  Therefore, his writings have been read by many more people, than his annual 2011 WordPress blog total of 23,330.

Many of us who study affordable housing, myself included, would not have any knowledge of the problems of smart growth and urban growth boundaries, if not for blogs and articles from Randal O’Toole, Wendell Cox, Dr. Peter Gordon, Dr. Richard Morrill, Dr. William Fischel, and many others.  Click Here for my list of web pages of Professors who are opposed and/or skeptical of smart growth and light rail.

You can also find Randal O’Toole all over You Tube, and he frequently appears on national talk radio.

Please forgive me for discussing ratings, however, all writers and photographers want to make money.  If you’re lucky, high ratings on a blog can lead to a successful journalism or writing career.

I’d be glad to write something for your editorial page.  Please make me an offer for any photographs that you like, and I’ll send you the full resolution, unedited, images .

Editors:  Please leave a note with your contact information on any of the comment boxes following any of the posts, and it will arrive in my email box.

Libertarians Oppose Urban Planning and Zoning in General

Furthermore, since I am an Independent, and do not present  a “Libertarian” pardigm like Randal O’Toole, then I believe that my viewpoints will reach a broader audience, irregardless of political affiliation, on your Editorial pages.

For example, I have very few issues with things that Libertarians sometimes don’t like, such as zoning, labor unions, more parks, bike lanes, expanding open space, greenbelts, organic gardens, permaculture, mountain bike trails, and land trusts for conservation.

My primary motivation in writing this web site could be described in many ways, but it’s partially inconsistent with the “Live and Let Live” attitude of The Libertarians.

Both the Libertarians, along with the Democrats and Republicans, and the proponents of “smart growth” have failed to effectively advocate and implement the following. I have discussed this in my thesis post, and in many other places on this web site –

1) aesthetically pleasing housing design within attractive, green low density neighborhoods, with the mandatory preservation of natural vegetation and other natural features; along with organic farms and passive solar design

2) to demonstrate that the methods of smart growth have profound economic and sociological consequences on the Middle Class, and increase the cost of living, i.e. urban growth boundaries and impact fees.  Smart growth and impact fees have been primarily responsible for our affordable housing crisis, loss of construction jobs, food stamp dependence, expensive apartments that the poor cannot afford, and increasing rates of suburban homelessness due to foreclosures.

Is comparing a Libertarian site against an Independent site an equal comparison?

Absolutely not.  Folks that search the internet for smart growth, light rail, or information on cities are not necessarily looking for political perspectives.  Therefore, to compare sites on smart growth and light rail, one has to put politics aside, and look at the popularity of the subject matter alone.

You’d have to compare the “Google Key Words” for both sites (below).  And, look at the “Categories” to see the subject matter indexed in each post (see below). Furthermore, my site covers the Western US, and Randal O’Toole’s site covers the entire world.  Below, I’ve listed my “Google Key Words” list ever since the site began in 2010; most key words are for places on the West Coast.

And, while Randall O’Toole covers Portland in great detail, I’ve barely mentioned Portland on my site. Instead, I’ve focused on Seattle and Washington State’s issues with smart growth, urban growth boundaries, and light rail.  I’ve also looked at growth in exurban regions, such as Bend, Flagstaff, and Durango, given that Baby Boomer retirees have an increasing preference for exurban small college towns, along with college graduates who prefer not returning to their parents’ overcrowded cities with unaffordable housing, such as Seattle.

2012 Ratings – All Anti-Smart Growth and Anti-Light Rail Sites Should Triple in the Ratings

In 2012, the housing market will remain stagnant, unemployment will remain in double digits, and all sites dedicated to promoting job and “quality green” construction growth should expect increasing ratings in 2012.  My ratings doubled from 2010 to 2011. I expect them to more than double in 2012, and I’m sure that Randall O’Toole’s will do the same.  Also, watch for more books that are both pro-sprawl, and anti-sprawl, and others that may advocate for alternative more desirable approaches, such as my favorites – Permaculture, Passive Solar Design, and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Broadacre Concept.

Furthermore, sites will increase for technical reasons.  For example, as bloggers discover more controversial planning issues in more cities, then they will write about more cities. This will lead to more google search terms recorded on their site (see my list below, for 2010-2011) –
