Of course, they aren't wording it that way, but 300 local home builders want the city to hold off on a $7,000 increase in development charges that will help to cover the gap between what developers pay and what that new development actually costs the city to process and service.
The real problem here is not a greedy city government or even that recently popular scapegoat the global economic crisis: it's that sprawl is a false economy, the continued subsidies for which are draining the real vitality out of our city and stymieing our ostensible plans to clean up and revitalize all the unused and under-used land already inside our built area.
