No Developers For Uptown Parking Garage Project
Now you can see why we are always complaining about the unreasonable Fire Budget and contract in Kingston. Also, the Business property tax rate being higher than the residential property tax rate chases developers away. Do you notice that there is little or no private construction going on in Kingston? I disagree with planner Sue Cahill. The new Uptown vibrancy will not draw a developer. But if the Mayor and Common Council had a plan to slash and reorganize the Fire Budget and to equalize business and residential property taxes, then developers would come.
