Public Finance Concepts for Planners

Randall Crane

December 2006, English

What should planners be taught about public finance? This paper has three primary goals: First, to revisit the proper facilitating roles of public planning in the private economy; second, to summarize the rationales for financing those roles; and, third, to illustrate the fiscal dimensions of several popular land use strategies, such as the fiscalization of land use, development impact fees, and transit-oriented development.
