These people will not be happy until they have filled up every inch of green space with stores, fast food places and cheap vinyl houses.

They walk away with their pockets stuffed with cash and we get left to deal with the traffic and the ugliness of it all. Enough already!!

How about a few more CVS or Walgreens stores? We still have a couple of intersections that need Pharmacies across the street from each other.

I agree, we dont need anymore CVS' or WalGreen's but I am offened by your comment on "cheap vinyl houses" - I pay just as much and in some cases more than older brick homes in taxes so before you start calling someones house cheap, you'd better think again!

Older brick homes have paid taxes for years and when the same size house is built from bricks, the cost is more and therefore the house will pay more property taxes to offset the cost of new schools, police & fire, road and bridge repair, water & sewer, etc.

Heartland Crossing and the new stores in Brownsburg are all in TIF districts. That is, any additional taxes collected will be used to pay for the developments' infrastructure instead of paid for additonal police and firefighters needed to protect the new retail. Therefore, present property taxes will be increased to provide these services as well as addional schools, etc for the low wage employees hired by these retailers. These low income employees will only be able to buy vinyl homes or rent vinly apartments, again leading to increased property taxes, sales taxes and local income taxes for present residents.

How to create 5 million good paying jobs

No need for more taxpayer bailouts and economic stimulus, if politicians would do the following: First, repeal all sales taxes and replace the lost revenue with an import tax/tariff on imported labor and manufactured goods. Second, repeal all local tax incentives that shift business costs to taxpayers and that create poverty wage jobs; or change these incentives to pay a living wage, minimum wage of $14/hour (parent with one child). Third, re-regulate banks and financial corporations. Fourth, enact a windfall profits tax on oil and gas companies; but, rebate this money through tax incentives for drilling and building refineries (including ethanol ones in other countries) as well as eliminating the $.54/gallon import tax on sugar cane ethanol. This strategy will slow these companies from using excess profits to enrich executives and to buy company stock. Fifth, increase taxes on fuel guzzling vehicles, wealthy individuals and corporations (eliminating corporate welfare and tax loopholes) to pay for the Wall Street bailout, the Iraq war and to pump more oil in Iraq for export. These strategies will lower the $11 TRILLION taxpayer debt leading to a stronger dollar that will reduce inflation and increase the number of good paying jobs with benefits for American citizens.
