Considering all of the growth happening and planned for this area, its about time. I can't imagine what Richmond Hill will look like in 25 years, especially once the new exit on I-95 is built.

Richmond Hill City Council has voted unanimously to propose tax allocation districts to the city. If passed, taxes for current residents will not go up. Instead, new people moving into designated districts will pay higher taxes. The main idea the mayor is pushing is letting “growth pay for growth," meaning incoming people to the Richmond Hill area would pay higher taxes in order to support the city’s infrastructure.

wow, that is actually... an awesome idea. I like it. Market based approach. Nice. I hope that idea sticks and maybe even they bring it to Pooler or our county.

What he’s proposing sounds like TAX ALLOCATION DISTRICTS or TADs ... but they usually work in reverse, giving temporary tax BREAKS to certain areas or developments in exchange for immediate investment and eventual growth in the overall tax digest. At any rate, it is indeed illegal and unconstitutional to impose different millage rates on city property owners. The only way I could see this happening is if certain properties were grandfathered for some kind of tax break — like homestead exemption or senior citizens. But even that is really questionable.
