Local leaders across the country have already built their way to better budgets.
Dozens of municipalities have compared development scenarios and the impact they would have on public finances. Nearly as many places have found that they could save money—and increase revenue—by using smarter development strategies.
How much can other communities expect to save with these strategies? And how much revenue, on average, does smart growth development generate compared to the alternatives?
Next week Smart Growth America will release new research that answers these questions. The new report collects local studies from across the country and will unveil new analysis on how smart growth strategies would impact an average municipality’s budget.
