What is Charlottesville and Albemarle’s Sustainable Population?

A very interesting conversation with Jack Marshall, president of Advocates for a Sustainable Population (ASAP). [no, not that ASAP]

Listen to the discussion at Charlottesville Podcasting Network.

One would think that with the money ASAP got from the Charlottesville and Albemarle governments they’d be able to get their website up and running.

While looking at Charlottesville Tomorrow for the above links, I saw that ASAP got the first funding from the City in August 2007 and the County in March 2008; we might reach the so-called sustainable population limits before they finish their studies. 🙂

    We’re moving to a fancy new website on a new server now, hence the transient error. But, uh, if we’d used that money for our website we’d go to prison, and rightly so. Every penny of that money had to go to the study, not promoting ourselves. We have a $0 website budget; it’s maintained by a board member.

    Prison, shmison. At least there are books. 🙂

    Seriously, though – the site has been down for a looooong time. I think an organization, particularly one that is taking public funds, should have a website that is operational and usable.

    Promoting one’s organization is one thing; allowing the public to see what’s being done is another … at the very least have a centralized place to download the studies (although that’s probably somewhere that I haven’t found).
