On the heals of the defeat of a $20 million bond for Rye school expansion, a Rye resident has assembled a web site that establishes a correlation (and possibly causation) between zoning, school enrollment and taxes.
In short, the research of Rye resident John Mayo-Smith on his site zoningplan.org shows a link between a massive expansion in Rye housing stock and a similar enrollment expansion in Rye City schools. Mayo-Smith reviewed data from the Rye Board of Architectural Review, the Rye Board of Education and the Rye City final assessment roll to compile his research.
Tell Mayo-Smith what you think by taking his survey.
