If I understand the question correctly, the answer is a resounding yes. Builders come into an area, erect new homes and then leave. Yes, the "tax base" has increased, but municipal costs for providing schools, utilities (water, sewer, electricity etc.) and police and fire protection fall on the resident taxpayers whose taxes may be raised to subsidize these services for new residents. We are all citizens of our communities and all should share in the costs of providing necessary services to maintain the standard of living that we all expect.
Growth can be a good thing, but unplanned and unchecked growth isn't necessarily good; witness the growth of the Road 68 congestion.
