There's plenty of talk about transit-oriented development, but one thing we often ignore happening much of the time is highway-oriented development. Which is surprising, seeing how much of it we build. Between this and Durbin Park being enabled by SR-9B, or Silverleaf and Governors Park and Oakleaf Plantation enabled by the Outer Beltway, or all the way back to Arlington being enabled by the Arlington Expressway. Millions and billions of dollars being poured into roadway construction to enable cookie cutter suburban development. That's before you talk about the utility costs or down the road maintenance costs.
So, to the young people fighting in this movement for change, here is my charge: march in the streets, protest, run for school committee or city council or the state legislature. And win. - Ed Markey
