I read in the March 22 news article “Raleigh might ask voters to fund road projects” that the Raleigh City Council is considering a bond referendum for road projects.
While I agree that our city streets need improvement to keep up with growth, I don’t think it’s fair that residents should bear the burden of the cost through increased property taxes, especially as we have just had several tax hikes from Raleigh and Wake County.
I think it would be more appropriate for developers to pay a larger share of infrastructure costs. They are the ones making all the money from growth. We shouldn’t have to subsidize their profits.
