Scenario  Planning and Fiscal Impact Modeling
Monday, March 10, 3:00 - 4:00 Eastern

Developing  a clear-eyed understanding of the short- and long-term 
fiscal implications of  development choices has never been so necessary 
for planners in local and  regional agencies. This webinar from EPA’s 
Smart Growth Program explores the  development and use of scenario 
planning and fiscal impact modeling,  investigating their use of 
analytical tools to explain fiscal costs (including  local 
infrastructure capital and operations and maintenance costs and  
revenues). Speakers will discuss how scenario planning and fiscal impact tools  can support smart growth implementation at a range of scales 
through innovative  methods and how various communities can use fiscal 
impact analyses to support  planning and economic development decisions.
