cist" and adds that she feels
"the black community doesn't

want it." Morris is also against
the bypass, saying "the death of
Model Cities is a high price to pay
for five minutes of driver time."
Burnham, on the other hand, sup-
ports Ashley-First though he said
that at first he did not. The GOP
candidate maintains that the
planned bypass would not cause
the problems critics have clai ned
it would.,
The problem of growth is a long
range one, and occupies the atten-
tion of many in the city. There
are concerns that attempting to
tamper with growth rate could
cause grave side effects.
Burnham sees a "totally no-
growth plan" as stupid and "of
dubious constitutionality." He adds
that unlimited urban sprawl is
"equally unacceptable." Burnham
says that one must consider both
economic and ecological conse-
quences when attempting to regu-
late growth.
Morris feels that the best way
to achieve a regulated growth plan

is to work at the zoning and de-
velopment regulation level, re-
placing developers with citizens
in the community as the ones de-
termining the make up of neigh-
borhoods.
Wechsler views the issue of lim-
iting growth differently. "Any
talk," she says, "about limiting
growth is aimed at keeping Ann
Arbor an upper middle class city."
Wechsler says that HRP favors
more, light industry and low rent
housing, with growth to be "nrhon-
itored regionally on an ecological
basis."
The financial crisis in the city
and ways to alleviate it have occu-

erty tax measure, but adds that
he thinks it was a wise move to
place it on the ballot. Morris feels
that income taxes are the only
long term solution to the fiscal
bind. He also says that voters,
when they defeated an income tax
in February, did not know the size
of the city's problem.
Wechsler and the Human Rights
Party favor steeply graduated in-
come taxes as the only fair means
of financing city operation. She
adds that there should ne a re-
arrangement of the way city
money is spent.
Burnham feels that any prop-
erty tax increase, like that pro-
