COODINATION OF URBAN GROWTH POLICY AND FISCAL POLICY WITH TRANSPORTATION POLICY AT THE STATE AND SUB-STATE LEVEL

The central concerns of this report are: (1) the examination of two groups of policy options which recently have been suggested as mechanisms for rationalizing the control of urban development; and (2) the investigation of the possibilities for relating these policies in coordinative fashion to development-sensitive transportation policies within urban areas. The two groups of policy examined are state involvement in urban growth policy and land use controls and development-related fiscal policy. The interrelationship between transportation and land use and the three approaches to modeling land use/transportation interface and the theoretical-behavioral approach are presented. State involvement includes discussion of the historical development of land use controls and the recent entry of states into development control policy, the trend toward comprehensive revision of enabling statutes for local development control and the implications for transportation policy. Two major land use distortions resulting from local revenue systems and trends in fiscal policy are discussed. The potential for coordination and reinforcement among transportation, land use and fiscal policies is presented. /UMTA/
