city; town; development fees
Our Position: oppose
It further restricts cities ability to impose impact fees, thus promoting additional subsidies for development, especially sprawl-style development. This whole concept that development impact fees are somehow hurting the economy or hindering development is ludicrous. In fact, to the contrary, the speculation associated with land and development in Arizona has helped to dig a deeper hole for our economy. Why shouldnt we have development pay for itself, especially when we continue to have empty houses throughout our state? The last things we need in Arizona are additional subsidies for irresponsible development.
