How a community grows and develops directly impacts a local government’s budget and its ability to provide services residents rely on. To further explore the impacts different types of development have on a local government’s bottom line, the Local Government Commission partnered with Urban3 and the Council of Infill Builders to evaluate the property tax revenues generated by existing developments in six San Joaquin Valley cities – Modesto, Turlock, Merced, Fresno, Clovis, and Visalia.
The Valuing Downtowns factsheet (PDF) provides a summary of the work performed in the six San Joaquin Valley communities and describes how other communities can perform similar studies.
