Slow Development, Say No To Ansley Park (#NOAP)
SAY NO ANSLEY PARK (#NOAP)!
Ansley Park could add 309 Indian Land homes near the corner of Marvin Road and Henry Harris Road in Indian Land. That means, more crowded schools, more crowded roads and our fire and police protected stretched even thinner.
The Ansley Park developer will provide just $500 per house to the county school district and $1000 for safety.
An impact fee of $500 for schools may sound good, but schools cost a lot more than the $155,000 that the developer will be contributing. Our latest bond initiative has two new schools in Indian Land will cost up to $126 million. That’s $4500 per household in the entire county!
So we pay $4500 and the developer pays $500? Sounds fair right?
Neighboring Fort Mill which has some of the leading schools in the state of South Carolina charges $2500 per new home for schools and various other impact fees on builders to offset costs and share the burden of growth.Why do we let developers pay less here just a few miles away? Make them share the burden or tell them don't build.
No funds are requested for roads except a turn lane. So the traffic impact of these new residents will be our burden not the developer's.
