The four types of growth

what do yo mean there are more than four types of growth?

what do yo mean there are more than four types of growth?

Original – Original growth means that we continue as we have been doing the last five years at least and let the developers do whatever they want whenever they want which in the instant matter means more office space downtown, more dense housing and potentially the world’s tallest building.

Zombie — Zombies are green so zombie growth would mean the same as original growth (more office space downtown, more dense housing, potentially the world’s tallest building) but we pretend there is some environmental benefit, such as the world’s tallest building being next to a train.

Devil — Devil growth means continue as we have been (more office space downtown, more dense housing, potentially the world’s tallest building) but we also create an incentive for churches to convert to more office space.

Skull — Skull growth means continue as we have been (more office space downtown, more dense housing, potentially the world’s tallest building) but we also create an incentive to dig up the dead, burn their remains –perhaps in our new Bixby Park incinerator — and turn Alta Mesa Cemetery into either an office park, a “company-town” for a leading software company, or both. Alta Mesa is 72 acres but does not serve well the 18-32 age bracket of young professionals.
