Downtown Soundscape


I want to thank Sheila Lodge for speaking out about density. I think anyone who believes that increased density is a solution to anything needs to reevaluate their reasoning and read a couple of books, i.e. Too Close for Comfortby Paul Insel and Henry Lindgren, and The Territorial Imperative by Robert Ardrey. Or, live in already overcrowded apartments in downtown Santa Barbara where noise prevents sleep and crowding increases violence.
