    While I am happy that the value of my home has increased over the last year, I got my tax estimate and now I am unhappy. The tax rate is up costing me more money. The tax burden is getting way too high. While I do appreciate the efforts of the city to make things more attractive to home buyers, I do think they go a bit too far. We don’t need a park on every corner. I still don’t understand why anyone would think it a good idea for the city to buy the property on the N.E. corner of Commercial and Pine Island and convert it from a revenue generating business property to a permanent liability as a park, especially considering we can’t afford to open existing parks 7 days a week. This is nothing but fiscal irresponsibility. Yes, our green spaced need to be well kept but they don’t need lavish landscaping. All I am saying is, we could have a city that is just as appealing while spending less. A clean and safe community with low taxes may be more attractive than a lavishly landscaped community with a park on every corner, bike paths along every street and high taxes.
