Where is the density really located?

The subject for this blog indicates that posts should be non-political.  I think an exception can be made for local politics, especially concerning happenings on “the island.”  Pretty soon, people will be able to stay in “Ocean City South,” which will be great for those who love Ocean City, but hate the absence of nightclubs.  I have mixed emotions about the evolution of Wildwood from a motel haven to a condo city.  I’m old enough to remember when the motel rage took over in the Crest, and the view at night along Atlantic and Ocean Avenues was somewhat impressive, especially before the motels developed all the wrinkles.  For the most part, the new condos were done tastefully, especially when compared to the old 2-story duplexes in OC.  But now, 24-story buildings will be springing up on the island.  The mayor says that increasing the allowable building area on a lot from 300 sq. ft. to 500 sq. ft. will actually decrease the population density.  What do I know?  I’m only an engineer, but I think I know where the density problem exists.
