TOOLS FOR FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE PLANNING: SPATIALLY PRECISE FISCAL IMPACT MODELS AND GROWTH EFFICIENCY MODELS
The process requires on the one hand a set of spatially adjusted revenue and expenditure models that meet statistical validity. These models will then evaluate development based upon their effect on revenues and costs to the County. We will then use the models to identify fiscal efficiency (revenue contributions versus expenditure demands) based upon location. We then use a growth efficiency approach that is based upon distance to major service nods and community preferences to map out location efficiency. Finally we compare the two approaches.
