There is a of a controversy brewing about who is going to pay for the new city parks in Bellingham. The city is considering increasing impact fees on new construction so that developers pay their fair share. But we all know that these costs will be passed on to homeowners.
City council members agree tht impact fees should be increased but I still undecided on how those fees will be calculated.
So how do we fairly raise money for new parks that are needed a city to population increase? Any suggestions or creative insights would be greatly appreciated by your friends and especially by your future neighbors who will be buying a new homes a higher price due to increased fees.
