How can the District reduce developer mitigation fees when future fees are already committed to paying existing debt? Where will the district get the money to mitigate all of the new growth that the City is rezoning for? Is there room in our schools for students from new growth?
Reducing fees when our housing cap has just been overturned seems like an odd choice.

Unfortunately, tonight the Board meeting was not webcast. Technical difficulty or deliberate?

I think the lack of a broadcast was deliberate. As of a couple of days ago you could not even download the board meeting agenda or packet of information. Obviously the current board and administration does not want to hear from the public. I have even contacted the board members several times on issues recently and only one board member responded.

On lowering the developer fees, that at least makes me feel good that the district does have enough money and will not be coming back to the community for more. Unless board members are working for the developers, I don't think they would lower the developer fees and then ask the public to pay more. Would they?
