Fiscal Impacts of Growth

Michael Crane and Associates, in collaboration with Jeffrey Carr, were hired by the City in the summer of 2004 through a municipal planning grant to study the likely impacts of residential and commercial growth on the City's fiscal well-being. One goal was to separate fact from fiction; another was to get a better handle on this issue to help the Planning Commission--and the community as a whole--to develop sound land use policies in the update of the Montpelier Master Plan. On Monday, January 24, 2005, Michael Crane presented is preliminary report to the Planning Commission. Though the cover still has the January 24, 2005 date on it, the final report can be viewed.
