- The results of the study show that different land uses in Walker Township have dissimiliar impacts on local government finances. From the perspective of taxpayers who live in Walker Township (who receive services from and pay taxes to the township government and the school district), residential land (including farm residences) requires more in services than it contributes in revenues.
- For every dollar of revenue residential land contributes to Walker Toenship and the Bellefonte Area School District, it costs $1.08 to provide services to residential land. Commercial and agricultural land provide more in local government revenue than they demand.
- For every dollar of revenue agricultural land contributes, it only costs $0.01 to provide service to that land.
- Commercial and agricultural land thus help subsidize the needs of residential land.
