“Burchell and Listokin (professors and co-directors, Center for Urban Policy Research, Rutgers U.) have written a manual on how to identify the range of costs related to residential and nonresidential growth. The six fiscal impact methods are described in a step-by-step format along with recommendations for how the methods can be adapted to meet specific requirements. The six methods are the per capita multiplier method, the case study method, and service standard, proportional valuation, and employment anticipation methods. The book will interest planners, businesspeople, administrators, economists, assessors, and others involved in land development.”
"It should become a standard text in planning schools ..."
". . . As for planning practice, this text should become the standard cost-revenue manual over the next five years."
