The elitist Raleigh leadership thinks it knows best where future Raleigh residents will live. Want a nice sized house with a backyard in a neighborhood? Too bad. Condo living is what's best for you.
And EVERYONE wants to be able to bike to work, right? Or at least, we all want government to dictate to us what form of transportation we should use.
