Geoacccounting: Helping Cities Understand their Finances and Put the Brakes on Sprawl
Join WTS Western North Carolina and Kate Raybon with Urban3 for a lunch seminar. This event is submitted for 1 AICP CM credit.
Land use economics is an effective tool to understand ways a community can proactively manage growth. It is also a fiscally-smart way to use land more wisely. However, few communities consider the important role that the value of land plays in land use planning, zoning, placemaking and capital improvement planning. The goal for Urban3’s lectures is to change the way people think about the cost of development, sprawl and the value of land.
The general learning objectives for Urban3’s lectures include:• Developing an understanding about how land use and zoning affects a city’s economic productivity and vitality• Discovering the ways land use and zoning policies are connected to built environments, and implications of those connections• Understanding how tax policy’s role shapes the built environment• Gaining new perspectives on urban development patterns, and how tax and fiscal policy can fuel market demand for sprawl
