    Title: Reconciling a Societal Need for Density with a Personal Desire for Space

    Synopsis: My talk will assess the current housing demand and proposed targets. I will argue that we are aiming too low and that even those conservative targets are likely unachievable, when looked at in the light of adopted policy. I will explain why I think we need to increase density on currently zoned land and how we can create better neighborhoods by doing so.
