Entropy of Cities
I have repeated the saying, if you are not growing, you are dying. Thanks to the Second Law of Thermodynamics, we know that entropy wins. Always. It isn't something we can choose to ignore.
Cities must not only know this, but must embrace it. Growing must be a part of their very being, not just a plan on the shelf. We all know those plans. They collect dust, are rarely consulted, and are eventually tinkered into a unrecognizable new project.
If your city is to prosper, it must be able to attract new people, new businesses, and perhaps most importantly - new ideas. How are you growing as a community today?
