Incorporating Market and Fiscal Analysis into the Land Use Planning Process

Friday, October 03, 2014, 10:15amEconomic and fiscal impact analyses and market assessments are essential tools for planners to understand. This session will describe the differences among market, economic, and fiscal impact analyses and their use in comprehensive and small-scale plans as well as planning for specific development projects. The session will be at an intermediate level and attention will be focused on the range of data needed to conduct each type of analysis, how the data is put to use, and how results are derived and interrupted. The session will focus on recent work in the Denver Metropolitan Area, where localities are working to balance economic growth and growth management. Learning Objectives: 1. Understand the use of market and feasibility analyses as part of comprehensive and small-scale plans and development projects at an intermediate level. 2. Understand the use of fiscal impact analysis as part of comprehensive and small-scale plans and development projects at an intermediate level. 3. Understand how a fiscal impact model can be deployed as a local decision support tool in balancing economic and fiscal goals. CM Criteria: Market, feasibility, and fiscal impact analyses are important technical tools to assist localities to understand these relationships—and can be an effective way to communicate these interrelationships and fiscal realities to the public at large. For many planners, these types of analyses are not necessarily learned in Planning School but are increasingly expected to be understood, evaluated, and critiqued. The session will educate attendees on these tools, their importance, and provide real-world examples of their use. Learn the differences between these types of analyses and their application in comprehensive and small-scale plans as well as in planning for specific development projects. The session will review why, when, and how each type of analysis should be used.
