Mega-projects : the changing politics of urban public investment by Alan A Altshuler( )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Mega-Projects Alan Altshuler and David Luberoff analyze the unprecedented wave of large-scale (mega- ) public investments that occurred in American cities during the 1950s and 1960s; the social upheavals they triggered, which derailed large numbers of projects during the late 1960s and early 1970s; and the political impulses that have shaped a new generation of urban mega-projects in the decades since. They also appraise the most important consequences of policy shifts over this half-century and draw out common themes from the rich variety of programmatic and project developments that they chronicle." "In comparing their findings with leading theories of urban and American politics, Altshuler and Luberoff arrive at some surprising findings about which perform best and also reveal some important gaps in the literature as a whole. In a concluding chapter, they examine the potential effects of new fiscal pressures, business mobilization to relax environmental constraints, and security concerns in the wake of September 11. And they make clear their own views about how best to achieve a balance between developmental, environmental, and democratic values in public investment decisionmaking."--Jacket

The humane metropolis : people and nature in the 21st-century city by Lincoln Institute of Land Policy( )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Four-fifths of Americans now live in the nation's sprawling metropolitan areas, and half of the world's population is now classified as "urban." As cities become the dominant living environment for humans, there is growing concern about how to make such places more habitable, more healthy and safe, more ecological, and more equitable-in short, more "humane."" "This book explores the prospects for a more humane metropolis through a series of essays and case studies that consider why and how urban places can be made greener and more amenable. Its point of departure is the legacy of William H. Whyte (1917-1999), one of America's most admired urban thinkers. Whyte laid the foundation for today's "smart growth" and "new urbanist" movements with books such as The Last Landscape (1968). His passion for improving the habitability of cities and suburbs is reflected in the diverse grassroots urban design and regreening strategies discussed in this volume. Included in the back of the book is a DVD of a 22-minute film created by Ted White, which serves as a companion to the text. Book jacket."--Jacket

Erosion of the property tax base : trends, causes, and consequences by Nancy Y Augustine( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increased reliance on residential property to generate tax revenue and soaring property values in many parts of the country have placed pressure on local officials to respond to concerns about higher property taxes. The result has been erosion of the property tax base through a variety of policies designed to relieve residential property tax burdens through exemptions or abatements. The chapters in this book provide analyses of recent property tax trends; examine several responses to the increasing importance of residential property; estimate the extent of property tax base erosion and its effects; and consider other related topics. The erosion of the property tax base raises serious concerns about the future health of our federal system of government and the continued ability of local governments to protect what de Tocqueville called America's passion for popular sovereignty. - Publisher
A good tax : legal and policy issues for the property tax in the United States by Joan M Youngman( )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The property tax has great strengths, particularly as an independent source of nearly half of all general revenue for local governments. However, it is undermined by inaccurate valuations, preferences that reduce the tax base and raise tax rates, and exaggerated rhetorical attacks. Addressing this situation requires attention to policy, administration, and communication. Tax expert Joan Youngman skillfully considers how to improve the operation of the tax and supply the information missing in public debate. The author analyzes the legal, administrative, and political challenges to the property tax in the United States and offers recommendations for its improvement. The book is accessibly written for policy analysts and public officials who are dealing with specific property tax issues and for those concerned with property tax issues in general
Municipal revenues and land policies by Land Policy Conference( )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the proceedings of Lincoln Institute of Land Policy's fourth annual cross-disciplinary land policy conference, this volume collects scholarly work by a wide range of experts in land policy, tax policy, economics, and urban planning. Municipal Revenues and Land Policies offers analysis of a variety of municipal revenue instruments such as intergovernmental transfers, property tax, tax increment financing, and local option sales and income taxes. Other nontraditional public good financing mechanisms including business improvement districts, homeowners' associations, impact fees, certificates of additional construction potential, debt financing, and public-private partnerships are examined. The analysis focuses on comparing the viability of these municipal revenue sources in the face of fiscal uncertainty." --From the Publisher

Zoning rules! : the economics of land use regulation by William A Fischel( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Zoning has for a century enabled cities to chart their own course. It is a useful and popular institution, enabling homeowners to protect their main investment and provide safe neighborhoods. As home values have soared in recent years, however, this protection has accelerated to the degree that new housing development has become unreasonably difficult and costly. The widespread Not In My Backyard (NIMBY) syndrome is driven by voters’ excessive concern about their home values and creates barriers to growth that reach beyond individual communities. The barriers contribute to suburban sprawl, entrench income and racial segregation, retard regional immigration to the most productive cities, add to national wealth inequality, and slow the growth of the American economy. Some state, federal, and judicial interventions to control local zoning have done more harm than good. More effective approaches would moderate voters’ demand for local-land use regulation—by, for example, curtailing federal tax subsidies to owner-occupied housing"--Publisher's description
