Recently a man wrote in about how good the proposed Holladay development will be for Holladay’s tax revenue.
At best, it will be revenue-neutral, with the city getting enough to pay for police and the fire department. For 20 years, with their breaks, the developers will pay very little in taxes.
The development will create a lot of police calls, as do all types of business. He also has five children; is he paying his fair amount of taxes for the children's schools?
There may only be four or five restaurants and a few small shops. The rest will be residential. Vote against the new project.
