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.


Who Should Attend
Planners in local and regional agencies and others interested in scenario planning and fiscal impact modeling.
