PANEL 1: LAND USE IMPACTS

THE EVALUATION OF LAND USE CHANGES INFLUENCED BY THE BAY AREA RAPID TRANSIT (BART) DEPENDS SUBSTANTIALLY ON THE AVAILABILITY OF INFORMATION. THIS REQUIRES THE CREATION OF A DATA BANK WHICH MUST BE BASED ON CONSIDERATIONS OF POTENTIAL USERS. OTHER THAN BART, USERS WOULD BE LOCAL PLANNING AGENCIES WHO ARE CONCERNED WITH ZONING, ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY OF THE TRANSIT SYSTEM AND ITS ABILITY TO SERVICE THE NEEDS OF THE REGION, AND NATIONAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS WHO NEED TO ALLOCATE FUNDS FOR TRANSIT. SOME SPECIFIC RESEARCH QUESTIONS SHOULD RELATE TO: (1) LAND USE IMPACTS ON CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICTS SUCH AS SAN FRANCISCO AND OAKLAND AND OTHER LOCAL IMPACTS, AND (2) DEVELOPMENT IN CORRIDORS THAT ARE SERVED BY THE BART SYSTEM AND THOSE THAT ARE NOT AND WITHIN COUNTIES AND BETWEEN COUNTIES. SINCE BART IMPACT STUDIES SHOULD LAST OVER A PERIOD OF 10 TO 20 YEARS, EMPHASIS SHOULD BE ON THE DATA TO BE COLLECTED, AND SOME OF THE QUESTIONS OF MEASUREMENT AND INTERPRETATION CAN BE DEFERRED.
