Sustainable development is not a dirty word

November 12, 2011

Columnist Marta H. Mossburg's views in "Governor, don't tell us where to live" (Nov. 9) are distorted. True, life in the year 1900 was simpler is some ways, but to bad-mouth the concept of "sustainable" development in 2011 is simply naïve.

Whether we like it or not, with a state population that will inevitably grow, we must plan for sustainability in all its dimensions if Maryland to continue to rank high nationally in livability. And why does she think of all this is an attack on Republicans? Simply foolishness.

When will we all realize that whether one lives in Baltimore City or a distant Maryland county, quality of life is affected by our state government's planning?
