As for those who are afraid of developing rural areas (loosing farmland and character) if highway 17 is finally upgraded to a full freeway, the problem is not having a freeway, the problem is bad land zoning. All it takes is for the community to zone those now existing rural landscapes as green belts, parks and Agricultural Land Reserves. problem solved, therefore any future development will occur as densification within the existing urban areas with limited expansion. Freeways are not the problem, zoning is.

If you ask me much of that area has become suburban sprawl without the help of a free flow highway... hmmm... zoning?????
