I believe if you check, you will find that Property Developers are required by City Code to put in sidewalks at their expense unless they get a waiver from that part of the code. Once the sidewalks are in, they become the city's responsibility to maintain.

Does anyone else remember that much (most?) of the land the Kroc Center now occupies was formerly Salvation Army property and thus exempt from taxation all along? That would seem to mitigate some of the tax issues some on here are so jacked up about. If I am in error, I welcome correction and/or dissenting opinions.

Well that guy asked for a gift of money to build his building. So yeah, many objected. The city proposed making it a loan and he backed out. To the best of my knowledge the Kroc center never asked for a thing. It's the city that put proposed putting in the sidewalks since they own that part of the property...just like they own the sidewalks in all the city right of way. Now...since sidewalks…

Record $140 billion in exports anticipated for this year

1 year, 8 months ago from USDA

But big decline projected for next year

While exports are forecast at a record 140-billion dollars for this fiscal year - exports in the next fiscal year are projected to drop five-billion dollars to 135-billion. That's according to USDA's Economic Research Service. The biggest decline is expected in oilseeds and products - down 5.4-billion dollars on lower soybean and meal prices.

Lower wheat, rice and feeds and fodders exports are expected to result in a 1.7-billion dollar drop in grain and feed exports. ERS forecasts a 700-million dollar decline in cotton exports due to lower domestic production and reduced demand from China. Little change is expected in exports of livestock, poultry and dairy products. Horticultural exports are actually to increase 2.5-billion to a record of 34.5-billion dollars. Agricultural imports for the 2014 fiscal year are forecast at a record 113-billion dollars - eight-billion higher than this fiscal year. The trade surplus is expected to fall to 22-billion - a 13-billion dollar drop. According to ERS - 22-billion would mark the smallest surplus since 2007.
