Sustainability (smart growth) is an international ploy, an outgrowth of United Nations conferences. Programs for sustainability are designed by social engineers committed to drastically reducing your standard of living.
Here is my documentation:
"THE FEDERAL REGISTER August 24, 1998 (Volume 63, Number 163)] [Page 45155-45161] Sustainable Development Challenge Grant Program; Notice [Page 45156]
"ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY - ACTION: Solicitation of proposals for FY 1998.
"The Sustainable Development Challenge Grant program is consistent with other community-based efforts EPA has introduced, such as the SMART GROWTH NETWORK. and the Sustainable Urban Environment effort.
"THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT CHALLENGE GRANT PROGRAM IS ALSO A STEP
IN IMPLEMENTING 'AGENDA 21, THE GLOBAL PLAN OF ACTION ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT,' (emphasis added) signed by the United States at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. All of these programs require broad community participation."
In his London speech, J. Gary Lawrence admitted, " ... local authorities [in the U.S.] are engaged in planning processes consistent with [Local Agenda 21] . Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy-fixated groups and individuals who fear 'one-world government.' So, we call our processes something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or SMART GROWTH."
People who ridicule United Nations connection to smart growth are either dangerously naive, or participating in a cover-up, attempting to divert public opinion from understanding the true nature of this program. State grants? Your tax money. They're counting on gullible people, looking for "free" money, to take the bait.
Government cannot simply cancel your Constitutional right to control your property.
They need to convince you to willingly give up control.
That's what smart growth is about.
