So, suburban governments, you won’t get the subsidy this time unless you repeal the regulation we required you to enact decades ago to get the subsidy we were offering back then.
It’s not surprising Charles Marohn (of Strong Town fame) wrote this, but I was a little surprised to find it in The American Conservative. But it turns out that Charles Marohn has been published there many times, mostly saying great things. It’s too bad the conservative audience has far too much self-interest in the suburban form.
The suburbs run on federal subsidies.
