  4. Use the comment field above to offer general feedback & specific recommendations about a voluntary or Santa Fe wide environmental impact fee. A fee could be quantified based on any number of negative externalities including our per capita greenhouse gas emissions factored by (our community's determination of) the social cost of carbon dioxide. Boulder has a carbon tax that currently equates to about $25/yr for residents and $100/yr for businesses. We could implement a fee in this range with a sliding scale based on property tax values. The fee can start out modest and graduate in time to help phase out emissions and advance to a more sustainable economy. We welcome your input.
