COLUMBIA — Karl Skala advocates sustainable growth. This means maintaining and caring for what we already have — including neighborhoods, streets, police, fire protection, schools, the natural environment — while we grow. This can be achieved by making sure new development pays its fair share of increased costs. Every development proposal should be presented with the costs and benefits to the community clearly stated.
