The Economics of Development in Florida, Part II

Wednesday, February 17 from noon to 1:30

In a follow up to his popular 2020 webinar for 1000 Friends of Florida, Joe Minicozzi, AICP, will provide a refresher on assessing the economic impacts of development and sprawl, including the associated costs and ability of local governments (and taxpayers) to foot the bill.  He also will cover new topics including Transit Oriented Development, tax policy and more. Drawing on data from communities in Florida and beyond, Joe demonstrate how to understand the impact of development on a community’s economic health.  His case studies illuminate how cities and regions can better forecast fiscally sustainable development patterns, in the process protecting sensitive natural lands and waters.  He is the founder and principal of Urban3, a real estate economics firm that maps the financial health of built environments to inspire communities of all sizes to think differently about development, land use, and public policy.
