Build it Better, Build it Smaller

ULI and Joe Canizaro both propose shinking the footprint of the city of New Orleans but by different means. I favor Mr. Canizaro's method as it allows individuals to decide the future of the city instead of being imposed from above. Although I think ULI's recommendations have some merit and should not be dismissed outright, yet people should be allowed to decide for themselves what recommendations are valid and which one are not.

Needless to say, the footprint of New Orleans will be smaller regardless of anyone's idea of what it should be.

Cities grow naturally with the influence of people, they are not created from whole cloth.
