"Infrastructure costs: It's not enough to say to Burlington 'So what, you'll have to pay those anyway'. Paying now versus paying later is a real tangible cost, as we discovered in the East Mountain financial analysis. Furthermore what infrastructure is required?"

Yes, it's not enough but it's also not true. Regular Burlington taxpayers WOULDN'T have to "pay those anyway". Infrastructure costs are paid for from development charges which, guess what, this project won't be paying. So, yes, no matter how you slice it, taxpayers through the general levy and every legitimate developer and even individuals who've severed a building lot will be helping out Young and Paletta.
