The Agenda of Metropoliticos

TAX SHARING
Close wealth disparities within regions by requiring fast-growing towns to shift some tax resources to cities and aging inner suburbs

NEW HOUSING
Reduce poverty concentration in cities by building low-income homes in outlying suburbs

END SUBSIDIES
Cut off government payments for exurban highway, water, and sewer construction, shifting development money to core communities

REGIONAL TRANSIT
Build transportation systems to provide inner-city workers access to suburban jobs
