STUDY OF BART'S CONSTRUCTION IMPACTS. LAND USE AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT PROJECT. BART IMPACT PROGRAM

The study examines the effects that BART's construction activities had upon retail sales and services and upon real property. Key informant interviews were supplemented by longitudinal data on taxable retail sales and on permits for construction in areas near BART. Many retail merchants near the sites of BART cut-and-cover construction claimed to have suffered losses in sales during the period. The Mission District (San Francisco) and the Ashby station area (Berkeley) show the most distinct signs of losses linked to BART construction. Property owners and builders were found not to have deferred or eliminated maintenance, rehabilitation or new construction near BART construction. (Color illustrations reproduced in black and white)
