Bringing more art to Miami is something that nobody can object. I myself love the idea of more art in the city but what I do not agree is the fact that Miami’s residents have to pay some punishing fee for that.
There are already many taxes, fees, and delays when it comes to the approval of city’s permit for construction. Instead of charging these fees to residents I believe it should be charged to tourists, not high fees, small fees to tourists would be enough to reach the intended purpose.
Let’s not make more taxes. Let private institutions develop art in the city giving them more freedom. Let’s encourage more donations but no more taxes because all that does is generate expensive local prices, fewer jobs, and less economic growth for the city.
