Do not enlarge the Growth Boundary. It is long past time to deal with the serious problem of overpopulation.
Our country is rapidly becoming a place that cannot even feed itself. When I was growing up in the Portland area 50 years ago, It was surrounded by small farms and orchards. The fertile land around the airport, Gresham, Beaverton, Tigard, Canby, Sherwood, and so on were farm towns. It is heartbreaking to see how fast this important aspect of survival is disappearing. California and Florida are being paved over. The US now gets garlic from CHINA. This example indicates how shortsighted and foolish people are.
We need to face the fact of overpopulation and change our behavior, now, before we destroy the fragile environment that sustains us.
