Why do you carry out Yokohama green tax newly while economic conditions are severe?
We push forward administrative and financial reform more, and should we not secure resources of green maintenance, creation? ?
Can green not keep in good condition if we regulate development?
What is reason that we judged to continue green tax? (what does green tax tax for?)
Q1
 Why do you carry out Yokohama green tax newly while economic conditions are severe?
A1
 It is very difficult to put back when green is lost once and must wrestle at future green maintenance, creation steadily early. Individual pulled down from 1100 yen to 900 yen, corporation of plan at tax rate for addition from current economic conditions at first in 9% from 11%, and interval, corporation tax percent decided not to have corporation which was not taxed bear at first in 5.
Q2
 We push forward administrative and financial reform more, and should we not secure resources of green maintenance, creation?
A2
 In Yokohama-shi, we pushed forward every possible approach including securing of reduction of city hall inside expense including personnel expenses and active annual revenue. We continued effort for further reform, improvement, but decided to carry out "Yokohama green tax" in future because there was in the situation that it was difficult to find necessary resources for green maintenance, creation only in it.
Q3
 Can green not keep in good condition if we regulate development?
A3
 In development permission system by the Town Planning and Zoning Act, you must admit plan to meet constant standard in area designated for urbanization. In controlled urbanization zone, we limit facility which can be located, but cannot regulate use of all land. Therefore, we utilize various systems including special green zone preservation district that is technique to secure green surely in Motoichi and planned green maintenance, but green most in the city depend on private land, and burden on maintenance or inheritance tax is big, and green continues decreasing in keeping in good condition. Therefore we promote large expansion of green zone preservation districts or imposition of tree planting by new "tree planting area system" especially and, by "Yokohama green up plan (new expansion measure)," plan green maintenance, creation.
Q4
 What is reason that we judged to continue green tax? (what does green tax tax for?)
A4
It has difficulty in thing that we regain when green is lost once at the same time as it is urgent problem we wait, and to succeed to Yokohama in the next generation that is full of green. About approach for green maintenance, creation, voice is sent from citizen's many of you, and it is necessary to wrestle positively sequentially. As we are thinking about green tax with city tax important at all that Motoichi becomes severe financial status and pushes forward approach of green maintenance, creation steadily, we are thinking that we would like burden on green tax secondary to citizen's.
