Urbification: Taking the sub out of Calif. suburbs

Walking. Bicycling. Alternatives to Driving Everywhere. Social justice. Alternatives to suburban boredom and waste. And the infrastructure and technology needed to get there.

Half-page ad on page 3 of the Oakland Tribune this morning trumpets: "Your employees found us...you can too! Make the move...to Stockton! Affordable housing - 50% less than the Bay Area; qualified, productive workforce; state tax credits and local incentives." It's deplorable that the state of California is offering companies tax credits to encourage employers to perpetuate sprawl, rather than building more affordable housing where the jobs and mass transit infrastructure already are. But the gubernatorial candidates are, mostly, silent on this issue.
