Fiscal impact analysis of urban growth in California.

Fiscal impact analysis (or cost-revenue analysis) is a quantitative method used to estimate the costs of providing governmental services to land areas and the revenues from those land areas. In this study, eight relatively recent, significant, and representative examples of fiscal impact analysis in California are analyzed and critically evaluated. The principal objectives of the study are to identify the considerations involved in fiscal impact analysis, determine the current state-of-the-art of fiscal impact methodology, and examine the implications of fiscal impact analysis for community land use policy. The underlying purpose of this endeavor is to determine the applicability of fiscal impact analysis for urban planning.
