Here's the link - which I got via Archnewsnow.com, if anyone else is interested in a lot of land use news ---
Urban policies of candidates
I've just started again to look at the information I routinely get by email updates on land use issues, architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, on and on...
and the first thing I see after about a year of not really paying attention to these kind of updates, is an article that speaks to the stated policies of McCain and Obama regarding what I think of as "greater metropolitan areas", that is, city plus suburbs.
This is interesting to me, and I haven't seen these issues addressed elsewhere - but as I said, I haven't been entirely paying attention to the urban design scene lately.
