Re: “Regulators Want 'More Compact' Development Proposal in Randolph

I’m a resident of Randolph, and don’t understand the “support of the business community” for this project (to the extent that it may actually exist). As is already manifest in the existing downtown, the mere presence of buildings is not what generates “business”. Rather, it is a combination of real relationships and filling true human needs, none of which is offered by this project.

It instead represents a mish-mash of suburban tropes which have long since exhausted themselves, and is based on laughable, pie-in-the-sky numbers. The proposal also ignore the vast changes that have taken place in the natural world, which—in stubborn contradiction to widespread belief—actually supports what we call “the economy”.

Anything of the nature Sammis proposes built on this site is destined to become a stranded asset, as interest in and potential for motoring-for-pleasure wanes, and global supply chains falter. Rather than maintaining a death-grip on growth models and resource sinks with no future, developers, the state, the commission, and Vermont residents should start thinking of way to create and reinforce resilience, marshaling existing capacities in a future that will be ineluctably marked by significant de-growth.
