Policy Analysis for Rural Development and Growth Management in Colorado.
Gilmore, John S.; Duff, Mary K.
Providing a broad analysis of Colorado's rural problems, the body of this report enumerates rural development and growth management problems; describes remedies worth study; and suggests a policy making system. The Appendix presents supporting material, including comparative socioeconomic data on each Colorado county. Opportunities and threats generated by growth and decline are identified in view of the following goals: (1) to counter economic decline and foster growth to the extent desirable and affordable; (2) to limit locally unacceptable rates of growth, or that which fails to cover its public/social costs; (3) to assure governmental capabilities at all levels to deal with decline and growth; (4) to preserve choice of life style. An hierarchical display of goals, policies, and objectives for rural development and growth management is presented via figure outline. The section discussing concepts and implementation tools presents detailed analysis of the following: (1) Integrated Regional and State Planning; (2) Rural Development Corporation; (3) Preserving Agricultural Land; (4) The Export of Poverty; (5) The Costs of Growth; (6) Development Gains Tax; (7) Pay-As-You-Grow; (8) Zoning and Other Controls for Land Use Growth; (9) Police Power vs Market Process; (10) Implementation Tools for Rural Development and State Growth Management Policies. Proposed program packages are also presented. (JC)
