Growth Management & Land Use

The Third Bridge Now infrastructure supports growth management and current land use for non-sprawl. Large areas of undeveloped industrial land in Vancouver and Portland are adjacent to each other. They are future growth areas that are land locked by neighborhoods because of I-5.  Added infrastructure to the industrial areas helps those areas retain their zoning. New and upgraded infrastructure in the form of heavy rail and direct freeway access enables business to increase. Business transit would be added for commuters, lessening the need for single occupancy vehicles. Freight oriented development and the attraction of business keeps companies from spreading into other areas along I-5 and I-84 and prevents business sprawl. People will only work so far from their home, so adding better access and/or keeping businesses together prevents sprawl.
