They lind it more jirotitable—or less unprofitable—to devote their downtown .property to .parking lots or one or two story buildings than to continue to pay taxes and maintenance on larger structures. The Gazette places the blame for this situation upon excessive taxation. In that it is fundamentally correct, although of coiir«! the business depression lias operated to make difficult, thu profitable handling of any high cost rental property, regardless of the tax rate. Depression or no depression, however, it should seemj obvious thai « tux syiftom that -<liscouragcs imjirovomeut of property is bad. It is in Hie public interest to -encourage -the erection and inaintejiance of -good homes and good business : );uildiiy{s. One w*y to do this would be to establish a differential iii the : tax rate 'between improved and -unimproved property. Uy taxing improvements at a lower rate than that applied : to the bare site value the productive use of land of all kindK would be encouraged and that, 'fundamentally, despite all the talk abuut overproduction, is what the public welfare demands. Such a policy would tend to make iwssible better and larger homes for people in moderate circumstances ami would generally encourage building of all kinds. A constitutional amomlment would probably be necessary to permit this, but it is a matter of sufficient ini|wrt- ance to justify that.
