TDDs Are Valuable, But Need Improvement
I just wanted to add my thoughts to Maurice’s post on transportation development districts. I don’t disagree with anything he said, but want to state that TDDs are a good way to pay for road improvements around new developments that would not otherwise happen. Developers already have to pay into the county road trust fund when they do projects that require road improvements, so it is not as if they get off scot-free. I agree, TDDs could use more accountability, but there is a way for people to find out what the sales tax rates are where they are shopping they can look at their receipt.
