Jack Marshall of ASAP: Towards an “optimal sustainable population”

We all have opinions on the growth going on in Charlottesville and surrounding counties. But Jack Marshall is well-positioned to make his declaration that Albemarle County needs to set an “optimal sustainable population.” Marshall is a cultural anthropologist who spent many years studying the effects of population growth. Now he’s the president of Advocates for a Sustainable Albemarle Population. He spoke at the annual meeting of the Ivy Creek Foundation on June 25, 2006, in the Foundation’s new education building.
