And then people stop buying new homes. And then the builders stop making them. And then the prices skyrocket on older homes, not to mention rental housing and now you're crying about all the poor people who are homeless or can't afford rent.

Why don't you just accept it is the city's job to ensure all areas within it are served with roads and plumbing and tax everyone equally? That used to work, btw.

I dunno about yours, but my property taxes are based on a property value assessment. And older more centralized areas typically have higher property values than new outlying subdivisions. So you get people in established subdivisions basically subsidizing the development of infrastructure in new subdivisions where people will be paying lower tax rates than they themselves.
