Impact fees are on the rise.

Nov 21 WSJ states "A 2006 Kansas State University survey found that 39% of the 292 U.S. cities responding imposed impact fees on new construction last year, up from 25% in 2002."

But doesn't this just make naughty behavior more expensive instead of stopping it? Consider the drug trade.

Maybe we need demand side strategies "Sprawl: Just Say No" or "Sprawl: Its time to plan" or "This is your soul on sprawl" along with an image of a burnt scrambled egg.
