Specifications include, but are not limited to: The overall objective of the study is to determine the cost of growth for various types of development on the community as a whole and individual taxing jurisdictions so that the information can be used by policy makers, developers and planners regarding short and long-term growth. There is a desire to examine the immediate, intermediate and long-term costs and benefits of growth. There is also a desire to include the lens of sustainability- economic viability, environmental viability and social acceptability – in the analysis. The consortium believes that evaluation of recent growth areas, along with potential future expansion areas would be helpful in the analysis. The consortium desires to meet with the selected firm to discuss approach and to come to an appropriate scope for this project.
