THE GROWTH SHAPERS--THE LAND USE IMPACTS OF INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS

This book examines the major role which many public facilities, termed "infrastructure" investments, play in the local development process. It covers such facilities as water and wastewater systems, power supplies, highway and secondary road networks, mass transit systems, and airports. Such investments affect local growth by influencing the location and costs of new construction, and can have a powerful effect on the density, timing, and amount of new development. This handbook is intended to improve understanding of the link between infrastructure and land use. /GMRL/
