Some growth is good
We moved to Forest Grove last July because we wanted to get back to a small town atmosphere that is reasonably close to work and family. I love it here largely because it still feels like a small town instead of a suburb. With that said some incremental growth would be welcome by people like us who prefer to shop and eat in the community. ('No place like home,' April 11, 2007).
I think there is a big difference between a new bakery or restaurant opening up and Costco moving in.
