The Price of Change. A Growth Impact Assessment Guide. Partnership for Rural Improvement.
Luther, Joseph; And Others
The handbook is intended for public officials, planners, developers, and others interested in determining probable costs to the public of a development proposal. Specifically, it is intended to help local officials identify cumulative and indirect impacts triggered by a development project beyond the actual development site. The handbook is organized in 16 sections. The first 15 sections (land use, population, private sector economic impacts, public sector fiscal impacts, housing, transportation, schools, utilities, public services and facilities, police and fire services, public health, social impact assessment, energy, aesthetics, and historic/archeological factors) deal with factors to consider when reviewing a development proposal. The last section summarizes physical impact considerations and includes a bibliography and an environmental checklist. Each section is subdivided into five parts: rationale for considering the factor, key questions for evaluation, methodology for answering questions, criteria and standards, and references and bibliography.
