State failed by state of infrastructure

The State Theatre downtown has suffered devasting flooding following the bursting of a water main. This is yet more evidence of the condition of our aging infrastructure and the quality of maintenance. What will be the effects when all those additional towers are built? How are the wastewater lines? I’m fond of the State and used to see movies there and enjoy the display windows of Venus Wigs, which shared that block and may even have been in part of the same building. A bond election is on its way. Are the priorities what they should be?

    The property tax to cost ratio from those new towers is what’s going to allow us to do a better job of keeping up with infrastructure needs. Suburban sprawl (low-density high-cost infrastructure development) cannot generate the funds necessary to continue its own growth – sooner or later you run out of urban development from which to get your money.
