"Continuum" piece on the recent airing and critique of the ideas of State Planni
"Continuum" piece on the recent airing and critique of the ideas of State Planning Office Director Evan Richert as they relate to sprawl in such areas as Camden, Portland, Wells and Lewiston/Auburn, which is the follow-up to Eco/Eco's conference on sprawl held last October. The current revenue sharing formula that sends 5.1 percent of sales and income tax revenues back to the towns is based on population and tax effort, which rewards fast-growing towns. The Richert plan is based on the concept that it is bad policy for the state to be subsidizing sprawl.
