Stranger journalist Heidi Groover tweeted this sneer earlier today:
Today in Seattle's growth fights, this guy just called single family zones the "prime asset of Seattle" pic.twitter.com/WGluK26KxW

If she cared to know, Groover could easily discover that “this guy” is Donn Cave, who is proposing a series of amendments to retain provisions of the Comp Plan – provisions which have been in the plan for the past 20 years – that define and protect single-family zones. Those provisions were deleted by the Mayor precisely because single-family zones are a “prime asset,” which urbanists and developers can’t wait to get their hands on. Read Donn’s proposed amendments, and read his previous post on our site.
