Development opponents shouldhave revenue options to offer

Paul OlsonBreckenridge

I am opposed in principle to the development of the Frisco town property behind the Safeway with big box national retailers.But I believe it is the responsibility of every opponent writing a letter to the editor or speaking at council meetings to have a viable alternative source of revenue to replace the loss of funds the town would otherwise gain by the development of the property into a retail center – or sold for development as multifamily residential housing. It is easy to be a NIMBY until one must also find a source for the lost revenue their opposition would cause. It would be very interesting to see the result if voters had to choose between allowing the town property to be developed as a retail center or raising all property taxes within the town.Paul OlsonBreckenridge
