Do you think urban sprawl is a problem in Lawrence?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 12, 2004
“No. I like the downtown atmosphere with small shops and restaurants but I also believe that more companies coming to town provides more employment and pricing opportunities.”
“Not really. It does have an effect on the downtown, but most of the sprawl is far away from what most people consider to be Lawrence.”
“I think there have been some encouraging developments in our city government, so I think we can get a handle on it.”
“I think that if growth is necessary, if we really need another Wal-Mart, then it’s OK.”
