We lived in Payson for 25 years and thought it would be nice to return and be with the host of friends that we had made over the years.
We have the plans of the house that we would like to build. After doing some inquiring, we found out that the impact fees would discourage us from building there. Evidently Payson has become a mecca for the rich.
How can low- and middle-income families afford to ever own a home there? It will even discourage subsidizing housing for the low-income families.
It is time for the citizens of Payson to look forward to the next election and throw the bums out who created the problem in the first place.
