Seems selfish to charge impact fees to new residents

To the Editor:

It seems selfish to want to charge “impact fees” to new residents. Residents who have lived here are as likely to use any new roads, stores or parks as are new residents. I have lived in Ocala for more than 30 years and feel I should help pay for new infrastructure because I will use it.

Charging new residents more (or residents who are just getting a larger house) smacks of “I got mine-you can’t have yours!”
