Rollin Stanley, the Montgomery County Planning Director, gave a lecture in Columbia last night entitled “No Density, No Diversity, A Smarter Way of Thinking About Growth.” He laid out his arguments for compact development with humor, insight and a boatload of data.
One of his funnier moments came when he was discussing the seeming obsession some retailers have with drive – thru windows.
“When I was working in Toronto,” he told the audience, “we banned the drive-thru. If you can’t get out of your car you shouldn’t be eating that donut.”
