Revenue & Costs Analysis
Discover the fiscal footprint of your city or other jurisdiction’s development pattern and regulations. With the right data and analysis your city or other jurisdiction can approach development regulations more like building an investment portfolio rather than just a list of rules.
- Model the revenue generation and/or cost burden of zoning districts, land use
categories, or any type of district such as neighborhoods or business districts.
- Model specific elements of development patterns such as age of structures, lot size and shape, floor area ratio, or proximity to services or facilities.
- Measure the existing and potential financial impact of publicly owned land such as
government owned or foreclosed properties.
Consensus Building & Public Engagement
Establish a more congenial environment for discussing your city’s development regulations and budgeting needs with local data and analysis. Our experience and insight can help create a common vision of the existing conditions and potential outcomes.
- Public engagement processes for comprehensive or small area plans.
- Workshops for elected officials, citizens, and/or city staff.
- Small focused studies on immediate issues.
Strategic & Comprehensive Planning
Add depth and clarity to your long-range planning projects. Illustrating the connection between planning efforts and the budgeting process can generate more interest and better discussions about the future of the city. Ask what citizens can afford to pay for along with what development patterns they want to see.
