Anyone who built one of those new houses in Pointe Hebert could have easily bought a house in East St. Paul instead. If a house at $830K isn't going to push you to East St. Paul, then neither will $860K.

For what it's worth, Bowman was quoted as saying this in today's Sun: "Bowman said the city would ensure a new fee doesn’t deter infill development." This leads me to believe that there could be differential pricing to reflect the true cost of development in various parts of the city... obviously something like Pointe Hebert is less costly for the city given that it's already serviced by streets, sewers, parks, emergency services, libraries, etc.
