It's really simple, guys, either New Growth pays for New Growth, or you end up with existing taxpayers and residents subsidizing the costs of the new roads needed for new development. Why doesn't the commission just go all the way - drop all impact fees - let existing residents pay for it all, subsidizing new development thru increased property and gasoline taxes. Oh, that's right, we already seem to be doing that. For goodness sake, let's not affect the overbuilt, "depressed" housing market - we need to keep this crazy Florida pyramid scheme of creating more and more residents who'll pay for the future costs of more and more future development. Either new growth will pay for their impacts, or the rest of us will.

Hopefully these "fresh eyes" will not include any development interests. Its time the commission starts representing the us. We might as well bite the bullet and start transitioning away from unsustainable suburban sprawl. A good start would be to start manufacturing in America again. I mean maybe we can manufacture the american flag lapel stuck on developer dog's chest.
