Mythical Unicorn or Real-Life Trojan Horse

We are part of The Trust Project

Developers are having the hardest time selling the average Yorktowner (non-politician) that irreversibly changing their community is in their own and children’s best interest. Developers speak volumes about their efforts increasing Yorktown’s tax base but neglect to mention all the hidden long-term financial and quality-of-life costs that will inevitably be paid by our town’s residents. Not a single word regarding how many millions they’ll rake in for themselves, complements of our politicians granting generous zoning concessions and tax breaks.

Business-as-usual “adopt-a-developer programs” don’t sound to be quite fair to taxpayers.
