      Council approves voluntary car use reduction

      It was a slow night for the Sebastopol city council Tuesday night, as bicycles and slow foods were the order of the evening.

      The council approved a resolution supporting Car-Lite and other community groups in a voluntary Drive Less and Car Free Day.

        Half full or half empty? The Sebastopol City Council's approval of a Drive Less and Car Free Day is a bit ironic because most of the population lives in a sprawling region of rural residential development -- the most car-dependent and driving-intensive form of development possible. Realistically, the options form most residents are driving or staying home. So the Council's resolution may be more feel-good lip service than serious intention. If they were really serious, they would change their zoning and building codes...
