    I was on my township's planning commission in the 80's in 90's in the suburban northeast.  We had a terrible time handling the housing boom then.  It was hard to keep up with all the court decisions like Mt. Laurel and hard to keep our ordinances up to date.  School taxes skyrocketed because the district was getting 1000 new students/year.  Of course there was no help from the state or federal government.  The developers need to pay for the real cost of development - schools, water, sewer plants, roads and intersection improvements, fire, police, etc.
