Managing Sprawl In The Land Of Unintended Consequences, Robert S. Bucci Sep 2000

Managing Sprawl In The Land Of Unintended Consequences, Robert S. Bucci

New England Journal of Public Policy

Residential and commercial development is no longer quickly embraced to stimulate economic progress and prosperity. Municipalities are learning that development often extracts a price — sometimes the loss of community character and local charm, sometimes tax revenues that fall short of increased expenditures, and sometimes just plain ugliness.

This implies that sensitivity testing for alternative spatial units should accompany any analysis with the concentration measures.
