Auto Center Expansion will Boost Sales Tax Revenues in Davis
An auto dealer’s expansion in Davis will be a big boost for the college town’s tax revenues.

On paper, Hanlees in Davis is simply asking the city for permission to construct two new buildings, so that each of their current brands – Toyota, Nissan, Chevy and Ford – would have its own store. Right now they share space in a pair of locations. But the expansion will give the Davis Auto Center along Chiles Road a stronger hand to play if Woodland votes next month, as expected, to authorize a new auto center by Interstate 5. Davis badly needs local sales tax revenues, and has a long history of having its residents go shopping in Woodland. The Davis auto dealers generate nearly 40% of the city’s total. Hanlee’s expansion should drive sales higher.
