Mike Campana seems to be channeling Coco in this post about Las Vegas:
It may be time to tie land use planning directly to water planning.
The subject is Las Vegas, which is running out of water. Or, more accurately, is running into more people. There’s plenty of water for fewer people. The subject is also of some relevance here.
I shouldn’t pick on Las Vegas – here in Oregon, we’re not much better at linking land use planning to water planning. Your point is good – LV is running into more people.
It’s interesting to note that in Spanish, “las vegas” means “the meadows”. Yeah, there once were meadows and springs in the Las Vegas Valley.
