I don't think it's just a matter of political leanings but the high tax rates will not appeal to the conservatives who would otherwise consider Syracuse affordable.

Also, despite some effort to grow the urban core, Syracusans seem more interested in sprawling into the countryside. Isn't there a new 200 home development being proposed for Clay, an area with lousy public transit?

Probably, but there are also more apartments slated for Franklin Square and other locations in/near Downtown. So, you have both forms of development. You are also seeing villages planning to develop similar housing units that are in walkable neighborhoods too.

The problem is that we have no clue what will happen in the future. So, it is tough to say outside of what may be happening now.

I don't know if having a conservative/liberal balance is necessary for growth, as areas with leanings either way are growing and some aren't/doing so slowly.
