    Re: Transbay center’s use of understory space:
    The understory development plans sound good.  More troubling is the
    persistence of specialized, directed tax payments to development
    projects.  Will these local businesses be paying an extra small tax to
    contribute to their immediate environment, a place that will
    inordinately benefit them?  Fine.  Or will these local businesses have
    their normal property tax funneled into their neighborhood benefits, at
    the expense of the City’s general fund that benefits all residents?  Not
    okay.  That leads to less service and higher taxes on all other
    taxpayers.  And that’s precisely what Governor Brown was trying to put an end to when he abolished the diversion of public funds for private business’/developers’ benefit.
