Hi Brian - Well that's good news! We should talk sometime, as I am very active in my children's schools and I'm sure I can give you some good information.

Hi: Do you have a website, meeting schedule and the need for help on your team initiative to break away from RUSD?

As a transplant of a number of years to the area, I was not a part of nor aware of the "save don't pave" agenda. However, based upon what I know regarding it, I can understand why some would resent present agendas in view of those from the past.
Please know that my agenda is not "save don't pave."
Regarding your assertions relating to the benefits or detriments of low density residential, we'll have wait and see the results of the study. Again, I commend the Village and Ron for undertaking it.
Perhaps, some form of development along 31 is inevitable. But perhaps something that is not so intrusive to the neighbors there?
Regarding your NIMBY comments on the blog, I offer the following:
1) please try to show some compassion for those trying to protect their homes and families (life's biggest investments)from an intrusive, 2-phase, big-box-anchored shopping center; and
2) everyone, including you, Walmart's developer, rep. or attorney, any Village trustee, etc. would protect there homes and families as described above, thus making everyone a NIMBY and those criticizing them a hypocrite.
That being said, my offer of a beer or coffee remains. I promise, I don't bite. Heck, you'll likely find that we have more in common than we do differences.

None taken. We both love our community and are very passionate about it. I do understand about smart growth and ran on that when I ran for trustee in 2006. It is a great idea, however, it hasn't always worked. The Wendy McCalvy's of this world have made me out to be a development fanatic. Not true. I volunteer alot of time for DNR conservation projects. I think the Conservancy has done a lot of good. But they in some cases made it very difficult to raise the tax base. For example; 5 acre density in many of the undeveloped land zoned residential. Whie it is good for the conservation cause, has negative effects on revenue, not to mention the existing land owners. My practical vision of Caledonia leaves just west of 31 to Hwy V and from just north of K to Countyline Rd rural and if residential does go in that box, must be 1 acre density in a subdivision or 3 acre density in a stand alone parcel. Commercial would be limited to existing zoned areas with exception to 31 from 4 Mile to the Cape complex. The corners of 31, 32 and 6 Mile Rd. Water needs to be brought to the I-94 corridor and commercial development zoning from V to the I the length of the village with a buffer zone around existing residential subdivisions. Douglas Ave is pretty much built out so that's not much of an option.

No hard feelings.
Feel free to contact me off-blog, and I'll buy you a beer or a cup of coffee.
We could further discuss the issues and I'll answer, or try to answer, any questions that you may have.
I could learn a lot from you regarding schooling, and maybe, just maybe, you couild learn a thing or two from me regarding my own cause.
