Cars equal personal mobility. Smart Growth hates it and them.

What Smart Growth dictates is centrally planned housing and transportation. A normal person wants to live in a single family home and drive his or her own car, individualist housing, individualist transport. Planners want social housing policies and mass transit. The dissonance pits social provision of services against the personal autonomy.

Smart Growth is mass action; liberty is an individual matter.

Smart Growth likes light rail, buses, trolleys, and regional transportation plans. Liberty provides roads and cars. An individual then chooses destination and time. Planners hate it when a person can make up his or her own mind. It cuts out the planner.

The American Dream Coalition is the nation’s foremost defender of personal mobility. It exposes local land-use regimes when they attempt to constrain mobility choices and restrict homeownership.
