I think you're exactly right - part of the perception problem LRT has is that there is no defined plan for the projected tax revenues. The argument is that development will fuel tax revenue but I think that a defined plan for a threshold where downtown development charge exemptions would be eliminated and how the projected revenue would be allocated would go a long way towards selling the project. Dedicated funds for enhanced transit (BLAST) and the A-line - anything that is a direct benefit to Wards that are not along the corridor - would be helpful. (We all know that this is inherently the plan - but it would help to spell it out).
