This study investigates urban residents positions on the issue of restrictive growth. The relationship between positions on this issue and support for the mere general issue of environmental quality is found to be weak. In addition, many of the variables that others have found to be related to support for environmental quality are not found to be related to support for restrictive growth. The only reasons for support that emerge from this study are economic.
