Rapid Growth from Energy Projects: Ideas for State and Local Action. A Program Guide.
Federal Energy Administration, Washington, DC.; Department of Housing and Urban Development, Washington, DC. Office of Community Planning and Development.
This publication is intended to aid local public officials and interested citizens in planning how to best manage rapid population growth resulting from construction and/or development of new energy-related facilities. In particular, it discusses what the impact of an energy project on a community is likely to be, shares ideas for action based on the actual experience of other communities, and points out sources for information, planning help, and financial assistance. The approach of the booklet is deliberately nontechnical and relies on actual community case studies whenever possible. Topics of the individual chapters include employment and population, managing growth, land use and housing, other impacts on the community, paying for the impacts, and sources of assistance. Also included are lists of federal, state, and regional agencies that can provide help to local communities and brief case studies of four areas that were affected by the inception of major energy projects.
