What Could We Do With $1 Million Extra In Sales Tax Revenue?
Some more ideas on how Pullman could use the extra $1 million in annual sales tax revenue that would be produced by a Wal-Mart Supercenter, derived from an article by Michelle Dupler in today's Moscow-Pullman Daily News:
Path linking Johnson Road to Koppel Farm, adding a bridge over Paradise Creek near the Village Centre Cinemas and Fireside Grille restaurant, path along North Grand Avenue to Terre View Drive, giving residents of northeast Pullman pedestrian access to Dissmores and other businesses, and path down College Hill from the Maple Street extension to North Grand Avenue - $814,000
Fine arts pavilion in Sunnyside Park - $350,000
Improved lighting and restrooms at Kruegel Park and the City Playfields - $760,000
Street repairs - $1.2 million
These are all things that would enhance our city. The bond scheduled for the November ballot can't cover them all. What do the brahmins of PARD suggest we do?
