I think when it comes to developers building a new neighborhood, it is sort of like a maker of bourbon telling folks to drink responsibly. Medical science tells me that one ounce of alcohol (the amount in a typical drink) starts to take away the inhibitions in anyone. Responsible drinking might not be and usually isn’t possible after that first drink.
