I always thought the idea was for locals to suck out as much local tax revenue as possible from the tourists, so that they pay much less (relatively) than before for schools, roads, law enforcement, and all other services. If more development comes in, the politicians should let it make the financial burden for those already living there less taxing,
El Dorado received a federal govt grant to basically pay the cops wages. Would the new town get a federal grant?
Are you saying that a developer doesn't have to pay a tax/bond based on sales prices for infrastructure upgrades that are required for, eg, damage to roads by construction vehicles over 15 years, all those buses, extra strain caused by making a place used more, the strain on pipes laid in the 50's/60's, electricity upgrades, mains water upgrades, and (I think from this) poop trucks:
The Tahoe-Truckee Sanitation Agency was form
ed in 1972 to fulfill the mandate of the
Porter Cologne Water Quality Control Act whic
h required the exportation all sewage out
of the Tahoe Basin to protect the water quali
ty of Lake Tahoe and the Truckee River.
The Agency manages five sewage collection di
stricts: the Tahoe City Public Utility
District, the North Tahoe Public Utility
District, the Squaw Valley Public Service
District, the Alpine Springs
County Water District, and the
Truckee Sanitary District.
The Agency transports all sewage from the member districts to a regional plant in Martis
Valley. This plant, which began operating in
1978, meets some of
the most stringent
discharge requirements in the country
1100 condos is a lot of poop trucks.
How big a slice of this pie would the town get?
