Last week, there was lots of chat about “the end of sprawl” after the New York Times ran two pieces harkening the decline of suburban expansion. One, “The Death of the Fringe Suburb” was relayed around the blogosphere with many putting in their own examples of how suburban expansion was coming to a close.
Clovis, like many other cities built on sprawl, would like to have a word with them.
The Clovis City Council has introduced another reduction in development fees to attract developers who have been sitting on the fringes.
The council approved a two-year fee reduction, that began Thursday, that would provide developers with an average savings of $4,500 per lot for residential development and about $35,000 an acre for commercial, industrial and office projects.
