Fischer’s courting (and buying) economic development

There is a better way to attract economic development from locals and out of towners. Fischer’s wine and dine approach, as outlined in the WFPL / Jacob Ryan report ( http://wfpl.org/heres-much-louisville-officials-spend-derby-guests/  ), coupled with his ‘buy the investment’ approach (OMNI) sells short Louisville.

If we take measures to become the most sustainable city in the US, investment (local and out of town) will come. Sustainable cities are compact, dense, public transit rich, surface parking lot poor, pedestrian and bicycle friendly, powered by renewable energy, have adequate affordable housing, healthy neighborhoods, an educated public, clean air, clean waterways and are verdant, peaceful and just. This is the better way.
