After reviewing the many statements being made about zoning, schools and taxes, it is clear an effort needs to be made to clarify the facts.
What we’ve heard: New homes pay more than their fair share of school costs.
What we’ve heard: Incremental municipal tax revenue on residential expansion more than makes up for the increased burden on our school system.
The Facts: Municipal tax revenue does not pay for schools and even if it did, it wouldn’t come close to making up for the burden on our school system.
The Facts: Eighty-five percent of Rye homes (including many new homes) do not pay enough school taxes to match the cost of just one student.
Put another way, for every dime collected by the city for residential expansion, school costs go up by a dollar. What we’ve heard: Fundraising activities, such as the Rye House Tour, mitigate the financial burden on the Rye City School District.Fact: The City of Rye is not unique; while circumstances vary, many cities and towns in Connecticut, California, Georgia, Utah and Texas are revising zoning ordinances to balance smart growth with school and community needs.(Source: APA) What we’ve heard: Zoning is revised ad hoc, and on a case by case basis.Fact: Rye last updated the Master plan in 1985; counterparts in Bronxville update their Master Plan about every five years.In Connecticut, towns are required by law to update their Master Plan every ten years.
