Value Capture: Incremental Growth Techniques and Case Studies
On August 22nd, 2019, the Federal Highway Administration EDC-5 Value Capture Innovation Team will hold its Value Capture: Incremental Growth Techniques and Case Study webinar. The webinar will feature experts who have successfully implemented Tax Allocation Districts and Transportation Reinvestment zones to share their experiences with case studies.
Value Capture Incremental Growth Strategies enable the states and locals to invest in transportation infrastructure and other improvements and pay for them by capturing the future increase in property tax revenues generated from the new development. Lacking funding, communities across the nation are ill prepared to meet the crises of infrastructure investment such as deteriorating infrastructure, rapid growth, urbanization, climate change, and many others. Value Capture incremental growth strategies can be a reliable and sustainable transportation gap funding tool. It also helps local governments in a variety of economic development goals, including job creation, growth in property values, and protection of the local tax base.
Is your state/local authority looking for new and innovative funding sources to help pay for urban, suburban, and rural public roads as well as spur economic development? Do you know which revenue tools are available to fund improved services and capital expenditures in your community? Do you need infrastructure to accommodate your communities’ anticipated growth? Do you need assistance in implementing Incremental Growth Techniques? Come to the Value Capture Webinar on August 22nd, 2019 to learn how Value Capture Strategies can help your community.
TARGET AUDIENCE: Metropolitan and Rural Planning/Programming Organization, States, Cities, Counties, Townships, and Tribal Transportation Professionals. Anyone involved in development or administration of the Value Capture Program Elements.
