The environmental impact handbook by Robert W Burchell( Book )

15 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 requires an environmental impact statement for any major federal action affecting the human environment. Now many state and local governments require impact statements from state agencies or private agencies. This handbook presents a standardized approach to the development and implementation of policy. Reviewed are requirements and proposals by states and other political subdivisions. Discussed is the content, format, and interpretation of impact statements. Recommended guidelines for preparing impact statements are outlined. Included are descriptions of projects and the existing environment, impacts of/on the environment, alternative strategies, unavoidable adverse impacts, impacts over time, and irreversible/irretrievable commitments. The appendices contain addresses for available guidelines, annotated and selected bibliographies, manuals, and newsletters, a listing of public and private organizations, and a review of interpretation of impact statements in the courts.

Sprawl costs : economic impacts of unchecked development by Robert W Burchell( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Publishers Description) "The environmental impacts of sprawling development have been well documented, but few comprehensive studies have examined its economic costs. In 1996, a team of experts undertook a multi-year study designed to provide quantitative measures of the costs and benefits of different forms of growth. Sprawl Costs presents a concise and readable summary of the results of that study. The authors analyze the extent of sprawl, define an alternative, more compact form of growth, project the magnitude and location of future growth, and compare what the total costs of those two forms of growth would be if each was applied throughout the nation. They analyze the likely effects of continued sprawl, consider policy options, and discuss examples of how more compact growth would compare with sprawl in particular regions. Finally, they evaluate whether compact growth is likely to produce the benefits claimed by its advocates. The book represents a comprehensive and objective analysis of the costs and benefits of different approaches to growth, and gives decision-makers and others concerned with planning and land use realistic and useful data on the implications of various options and policies."

The fiscal impact handbook : estimating local costs and revenues of land development by Robert W Burchell( Book )

16 editions published between 1978 and 2012 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fiscal Impact Handbook is a unique manual detailing practical methods for determining the full range of revenues and costs associated with residential and nonresidential growth. Planners, economists, businessmen, administrators, financial officers, assessors, community groups, private organizations, and those interested in the fiscal consequences of growth and non-growth will find The Fiscal Impact Handbook indispensable. Fiscal impact methods are presented in a clear, step-by-step format and are capable of being carried out by the practicing planner with minimal procedural problems. The manual is designed as a basic tool to be used for projections of direct, current public (and private) costs and revenues resulting from population or employment change to the local jurisdiction in which change is taking place. Standardized methods are presented with attention paid to the underlying assumptions, limitations, and applicability of these methods. Necessary factors affecting the planning and legal framework and documentation of key data input are covered for proper utilization of fiscal impact methods. Detailed examples are given to the six flexible methods, presented with suggestions on how they can be modified by the user to meet requirements. In addition, current computer models of analysis are evaluated for operational needs and benefits. Included also is a comprehensive bibliography of the cost-revenue field and an index for quick, easy reference. This is an invaluable work for urban analysts, planners, and developers written by two of the top minds in the field of urban policy."--Provided by publisher

Explorations in planning theory by Luigi Mazza( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is this thing called planning? What is its domain? What do planners do? How do they talk? What are the limits and possibilities for planning imposed by power, politics, knowledge, technology, interpretation, ethics, and institutional design? In this comprehensive volume, the foremost voices in planning explore the foundational ideas and issues of the profession.Explorations in Planning Theory is an extended inquiry into the practice of the profession. As such, it is a landmark text that defines the field for today's planners and the next generation. As Seymour J. Mandelbaum notes in the introduction, ""the shared framework of these essays captures a pervasive interest in the behavior, values, character, and experience of professional planners at work.""All of the chapters in this volume are written to address arguments that are important in the community of planning theoreticians and are crafted in the language of that community. While many of the contributors included here differ in their styles, the editors note that students, experienced practitioners, and scholars of city and regional planning will find this work illuminating and helpful in their research."--Provided by publisher
