Urban and Regional Planning


New! Land in Conflict Managing and Resolving Land Use Disputes
Sean Nolon, Ona Ferguson, and Pat Field In the United States, land use decisions impact the environment, economic development, community relations, and the quality of life. Land use disputes have become increasingly complicated and combative as stakeholders and decision makers voice their interests and concerns. The authors posit that the existing land use approval process (application, board review, public comment, and decision making) works for simple cases, but complicated disputes require a collaborative mutual gains approach to resolve. This book outlines the steps required to design a collaborative process, engage all stakeholders and decision makers, facilitate smooth implementation, and arrive at successful agreements.

New! Made for Walking Density and Neighborhood Form


Julie Campoli In her new book, landscape architect and urban designer Julie Campoli challenges our notions of space and distance and helps us appreciate the proximity of urban amenities. With hundreds of photographs, she brings to life twelve cities throughout North America, from Denver and Albuquerque to Columbus, Portland, and Vancouver. These neighborhoods offer various modes of transportation, diverse types of housing, and a variety of things to do and places to shop. Through compelling photography and insightful narrative, Made for Walking offers a fresh take on density, walkability, and the potential of cities to enrich the lives of their residents.

Resilient Coastal City Regions Planning for Climate Change in the United States and Australia
Edited by Edward J. Blakely and Armando Carbonell
Contributors: L. Brown, A. Cadogan, J. Duggie, P. Emmi, R. Ewing, P. M. J. Fisher, L. A. Johnson, D. M. Kooris, G. Laves, J. A. Lewis, D. J. Meffert, P. Newman, C. Quinn-Hurst, L. Stocker, L. Tam, K. C. Topping, P. Waterman, and R. D. Yaro

The importance of dealing with potentially severe climate impacts is increasingly clear as extreme temperature and precipitation events occur more frequently, setting climate records around the globe. This book reports on national, state, and local responses to climate-related risks relative to sea level rise and storm surge, drought and water shortage, floods, wildfires, and heat waves in nine coastal city regions: New York City, the Southeastern states, New Orleans, Los Angeles, and San Francisco in the United States; and Melbourne, Sydney, South East Queensland, and Perth in Australia.

High-Speed Rail International Lessons for U.S. Policy Makers
Petra Todorovich, Daniel Schned, and Robert Lane Decades of experience in Europe and Asia show that high-speed rail can create real value and would provide similar benefits in the United States. High-speed rail could spur economic growth in major cities, protect the environment, and save energy, but it requires a fresh approach that creates new, accountable rail management structures and involves the private sector. This policy focus report applies 50 years of international experience in high-speed rail to the U.S. context, and recommends prioritizing demonstrated markets, such as the Northeast Corridor and California.

Regional Planning in America Practice and Prospect


Edited by Ethan Seltzer and Armando Carbonell
Contributors: T. Beatley, C. Benner, K. Foster, J. Fregonese, C. J. Gabbe, G. Knapp, R. Lewis, M. Pastor, D. Popper, F. Popper, F. Steiner, and R. Yaro

This book assists a new generation of practitioners in understanding the roots, underpinnings, and applications of regional planning in America. Planners in the twenty-first century will need to understand local issues in a regional and global context, and adeptly define planning regions based on functional problems. Regional planning practice in the United States is settling into a new era, and the challenges that face communities and institutions require boundary-crossing collaboration like never before.

Planning for Climate Change in the West


Rebecca Carter and Susan Culp This report underscores the critical need for local planners in the Intermountain West to confront challenges posed by climate change and to act in concert with federal, regional, and state efforts to implement mitigation and adaptation policies. In this region, state climate action plans are a particularly useful tool for guiding local actions. These plans contain many policy options that quantify potential greenhouse gas emissions reductions and provide specific policy language and cost-effectiveness measures. This policy focus report was prepared with the Western Lands and Communities partnership of the Lincoln Institute and the Sonoran Institute.

Evaluating Smart Growth State and Local Policy Outcomes


Gregory K. Ingram and Yu-Hung Hong As smart growth programs in some states approach their fourth decade, climate change has posed a new challenge and made the effective management of urban development more critical. This is an opportune time to evaluate the effectiveness of smart growth programs and the implications for future land use planning by state and local policy makers. This policy focus report complements the book Smart Growth Policies that compares four states with smart growth programs (Florida, Maryland, New Jersey, and Oregon) and four other states without such programs (Colorado, Indiana, Texas, and Virginia).

Urban and Regional Planning


Smart Growth Policies An Evaluation of Programs and Outcomes
Edited by Gregory K. Ingram, Armando Carbonell, Yu-Hung Hong, and Anthony Flint Over recent decades, as concerns mounted about the economic, social, and environmental impacts of sprawl, many states and localities began to put policies in place to shape settlement patterns. By the 1990s, these effortsintended to encourage more compact development, greater transit use, and enhanced environmental protectioncame to be known as smart growth programs. Despite their widespread adoption, there has been little systematic assessment of their effectiveness or consequences. The Lincoln Institute collaborated with researchers and planners to measure and compare outcomes in four states with statewide smart growth programs (Florida, Maryland, New Jersey, and Oregon) and four states without such programs (Colorado, Indiana, Texas, and Virginia). The investigation reveals great heterogeneity. No state did well on all smart growth principles or on all measures, although individual states typically succeeded in their top priority policy area.

Urban Planning Tools for Climate Change Mitigation


Patrick M. Condon, Duncan Cavens, and Nicole Miller Urban form is a key contributor to greenhouse gas emissions through the physical arrangement of streets, building types, and land uses that influence both vehicle use and energy consumption in buildings. City and regional officials now facing new emissions reduction requirements are increasingly turning to urban design as a key component of climate mitigation. But, this approach requires decision support tools that illustrate the GHG implications of land use and transportation options. This policy focus report reviews existing tools by scope, scale, methodology, and policy support, and presents four case studies illustrating how the tools are used.

Working Across Boundaries People, Nature, and Regions


Matthew J. McKinney and Shawn Johnson The authors present an array of practical and tested strategies and techniques that can be employed across the broad range of land use, natural resource, and environmental issues at scales ranging from the metropolitan to the megaregional, including watersheds and ecosystems. This book provides a robust set of four stages, ten guiding principles, five key questions for regional governance, and seven habits of effective implementation that can be referred to before, during, and after undertaking regional collaboration. It draws heavily on its sister (or perhaps, parent) field, consensus building, which is itself based on the theory of mutual gains negotiation.

Planning Support Systems for Cities and Regions


Edited by Richard K. Brail
Contributors: E. Allen, M. Batty, K. Clarke, B. Deal, S. Geertman, G. Janes, R. Klosterman, M. Kwartler, X. Liu, T. Moore, V. Pallathucheril, H. Timmermans, P. Waddell, L. Wang, and A. Yeh

This book invites the reader to join in a virtual dialogue with its authorseducators, theorists, model builders, and plannersabout technology and the social context in which technology is employed. It reflects a dialogue that took place in September 2007, when the Lincoln Institute convened the authors and several invited planning experts to discuss the state of the art in planning support systems. Planning will never be easy; it needs and deserves the best support systems that modelers and system developers can deliver.

Visualizing Density
Julie Campoli and Alex S. MacLean With a growing population100 million more people expected in the United States by 2050rising energy and transportation costs, disappearing farmland and open space, and the need for a reduction in global warming emissions, the future built environment must include more density. Julie Campoli and aerial photographer Alex S. MacLean created a full-color book to help planners, designers, public officials, and citizens better understand density as it applies to the residential environment. Also included is a CD-Rom of the Density Catalog section, including more than 1,000 aerial photographs of 250 locations that illustrate a vast range of densities.

Making Sense of Place Film Series


The Making Sense of Place film series examines complex questions of urban planning and regional identity by exploring the ways people participate in and experience cities. The films chart urban change, the erosion of inner suburbs, and the growth of outer suburbs in Phoenix, Cleveland, and Portland. Residents, business leaders, community activists, elected officials, and experts in land use and urban planning discuss each citys struggles with sprawl, population loss, economic development, and troubled schools. All three films were produced by Northern Light Productions, in cooperation with the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy.

Portland: Quest for the Livable City


As cities attempt to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the experience of Portland, Oregon, shows the difficulties of sustainable planning in the twenty-first century as cities confront issues of economic development, gentrification, local food and farming, property rights, preservation, and civic participation.

Reinventing Conservation Easements A Critical Examination and Ideas for Reform


Jeff Pidot Among the forces driving the rapid expansion of conservation easements and land trusts over the past 20 years are tax and other public subsidies and the view that the conservation easement is a win-win strategy in land protection. The thesis of this policy focus report is that conservation easements are a valuable land protection tool, complementing regulation, land acquisition, and tax policies, but that reforms are needed in tax and other laws and conventions governing easements, lest we risk losing the public benefits for which the easements were established.

Housing and Urban Development


New! Regenerating Americas Legacy Cities
Alan Mallach and Lavea Brachman From the 1960s through the 1980s, the nations older industrial cities fell into near-universal decline resulting from waves of deindustrialization and population loss. While some have continued on a downward spiral in subsequent decades, others have shown strong signs of revival since the the 1990s, when a renewed interest in urban living and growth started drawing significant numbers back to live, work, and trade in metropolitan centers. This report identifies 18 U.S. cities in various stages of recovery and suggests that new physical, economic, and governance forms are necessary to overcome the powerful obstacles in the way of urban progress.

The Community Land Trust Reader


Edited by John Emmeus Davis The community land trust (CLT) is an innovative form of tenure that combines common ownership of land with individual ownership of buildings on that land. This model first appeared in the United States 40 years ago. There are now over 200 CLTs in 44 states and the District of Columbia, and they are being developed worldwide. This volume brings together for the first time the seminal texts that inspired and defined the CLT. Many of the 47 essays and excerpts examine contemporary applications of the CLT to promote home ownership, spur community development, protect public investment, and capture land gains for the common good.

Inclusionary Housing in International Perspective Affordable Housing, Social Inclusion, and Land Value Recapture
Edited by Nico Calavita and Alan Mallach
Contributors: G. Caudo, J. Clusa, S. Monk, S. Mur, and R. Weiner

Inclusionary housing is a term that refers to a program, regulation, or law that requires or provides incentives to private developers to incorporate affordable or social housing as a part of market-driven developments, either by incorporating the affordable housing into the same development, building it elsewhere, or contributing money or land for the production of social or affordable housing in lieu of construction. This volume examines inclusionary housing programs in-depth in seven countries (United States, Canada, England, Ireland, France, Spain, and Italy) and reports on experiences in others, including South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Israel, India, and Colombia.

Housing and Urban Development


The Impact of Large Landowners on Land Markets
Edited by Raphael W. Bostic
Contributors: J. C. Brown, T. S. Chapin, J. Geoghegan, D. L. Gladstone, C. Uchenna Ikejiofor, K. S. Kolapalli, L. B. Lewis, D. C. Sloane, and P. Zhu

Large landowners represent an ideal group through which to study land use and the many forces that interact and converge to shape market outcomes, governance, and institutional form. The authors focus on land supply decisions, economic productivity, and the planning process. Conflicts that arise between stakeholders during the development process serve as the challenge and the opportunity to collectively shape our cities.

TownGown Collaboration in Land Use and Development


Yesim Sungu-Eryilmaz Once considered enclaves of intellectual pursuit, higher education institutions now play a much broader role in their neighborhoods and cities. They contribute to urban economic and community development, through their direct impacts on employment, spending, and workforce development, as well as their ability to produce innovation, attract industry, and revitalize neighborhoods. This policy focus report explores how these institutions often have to reach beyond traditional campus boundaries to establish more collaborative towngown relationships.

The CityCLT Partnership Municipal Support for Community Land Trust


John Emmeus Davis and Rick Jacobus A growing number of cities and counties have chosen to support existing CLTs, and to start new ones. Two key policy needs drive this new interest, particularly in jurisdictions that put a social priority on home ownership for lower-income families and a fiscal priority on protecting the publics investment in affordable housing: long-term preservation of subsidies and long-term stewardship of housing. Based on a review of three dozen municipal programs and interviews with officials and CLT practitioners, this policy focus report describes how cities are investing in CLT startups, projects, and operations.

Property Taxation
New! Rethinking Property Tax Incentives for Business
Daphne A. Kenyon, Adam H. Langley, and Bethany P. Paquin In their efforts to increase economic development, state and local governments use many different types of property tax incentives for business. Some of these incentives target particular industries or investments that serve public goals such as job creation or property renovation. Others are geographically targeted, serving as part of larger incentive packages such as enterprise zones. This policy focus report reviews the range of property tax incentives for business, summarizes the literature regarding their effectiveness, and makes recommendations for reforming their use.

A Tale of Two Taxes Property Tax Reform in Ontario


Richard M. Bird, Enid Slack, and Almos Tassonyi The Canadian province of Ontario has found it difficult to get the property tax right. From many perspectives, the property tax is not one tax, but twoa tax on residential property and a tax on businessand they differ in political dimension and economic impact, as well as in how they are administered. This book evaluates Ontarios introduction of a major reform in property tax policy in 1998. While full market value assessment and other reforms are possible, they require careful design, implementation, and sustained follow-up to succeed, especially in large metropolitan areas.

Assessing the Theory and Practice of Land Value Taxation


Richard F. Dye and Richard W. England The land value tax is a variant of the property tax that imposes a higher tax rate on land than on improvements, or assesses only the land value. Land value taxation could make the property tax fair and efficient. This policy focus report considers the following features as part of a tax reform package: measures to guarantee observance of best practices by local assessing officials and frequent reassessment of taxable properties; phase-in of dual tax rates over several years to reduce the immediate negative impact on some property owners; and a tax credit feature in communities where land-rich but income-poor citizens might suffer from land value taxation.

Challenging the Conventional Wisdom on the Property Tax


Edited by Roy Bahl, Jorge Martinez-Vazquez, and Joan Youngman
Contributors: M. E. Bell, J. Deskins, A. S. Dornfest, W. Fox, B. Jacob, L.-C. J. Lim, W. J. McCluskey, A. Muthitacharoen, L. Noiset, M. A. Pagano, M. Rider, T. A. Sexton, S. M. Sheffrin, S. Wallace, and G. R. Zodrow

This book reviews the role of the property tax, addresses the reasons behind its poor performance in practice, and critiques the conventional wisdom in academic literature on the subject. While U.S. policy discussion focuses on assessment limits, rollbacks, and even elimination of the property tax, many other developed countries struggle with low collection rates, and, in most developing countries, the property tax remains a weak revenue source. The authors ask whether new reforms might reverse these patterns.

Property Taxation
Payments in Lieu of Taxes Balancing Municipal and Nonprofit Interests
Daphne A. Kenyon and Adam H. Langley In recent years, local government revenue pressures have led to heightened interest in payments in lieu of taxes (PILOTs), which are payments made voluntarily by tax-exempt nonprofits as a substitute for property taxes. This policy focus report presents case studies of several municipalities that have pursued PILOTs in the past decade, as well as a broader picture of PILOT use in the United States. It also recommends how to design PILOT programs that are fair to nonprofits while raising meaningful revenue for municipalities.

The Property Tax and Local Autonomy


Edited by Michael E. Bell, David Brunori, and Joan Youngman
Contributors: A. Bristle, K. Connolly, R. F. Dye, W. A. Fischel, R. C. Fisher, C. W. Hoene, R. McManmon, W. E. Oates, M. A. Pagano, A. Prasad, and H. Wolman

The property tax has been the primary source of revenue for local governments in the United States for centuries. Conventional wisdom holds that the property tax is essential to local autonomy because there are no viable alternatives to raising revenue for local services. Yet the property tax has been under siege for decades. This book examines the consequences of a declining property tax base with respect to local government autonomy and its impacts on governmental relations, education finance, and other issues.

Erosion of the Property Tax Base Trends, Causes, and Consequences


Edited by Nancy Y. Augustine, Michael E. Bell, David Brunori, and Joan M. Youngman

Increased reliance on residential property to generate tax revenue and soaring property values in many parts of the country have placed pressure on local officials to respond to concerns about higher property taxes. The result has been erosion of the property tax base through policies designed to relieve residential property tax burdens through exemptions or abatements. This book analyzes recent property tax trends; estimates the extent and effects of property tax base erosion; and considers other related topics.

Land Value Taxation Theory, Evidence, and Practice


Richard F. Dye and Richard W. England
Contributors: J. Anderson, M. Bell, S. Bourassa, J. Bowman, R. Coe, R. Franzsen, J. German, W. Oates, E. Plummer, and R. Schwab

In his 1879 classic book, Progress and Poverty, Henry George proposed a tax on land values to reduce social inequality, discourage real estate speculation, and promote economic development. As an alternative to the property tax, a land value tax would increase the tax rate on land and decrease the tax rate on buildings. Since Georges day, various forms of land taxation have been adopted (and sometimes repealed) in jurisdictions throughout the world. This book surveys the current state of knowledge on this topic.

Property Tax Circuit Breakers Fair and Cost-Effective Relief for Taxpayers
John H. Bowman, Daphne A. Kenyon, Adam Langley, and Bethany Paquin Property tax circuit breakers can increase tax equity by reducing the most onerous property tax burdens as measured in relation to income. These tools are important for households both at the lower end of the income distribution and in states with high property taxes. Circuit breakers promote tax equity at minimal cost to state and local budgets, while preserving the basic nature and strengths of the property tax as a source of local revenue. Recommendations for the best design of property tax circuit breakers are included in this policy focus report.

Making the Property Tax Work Experiences in Developing and Transitional Countries
Roy Bahl, Jorge Martinez-Vazquez, and Joan Youngman
Contributors: A. Aleksiene, A. Bagdonaviius, M. Bell, R. Bird, J. Bowman, J. Eckert, R. Franzsen, Y. Hong, W. McCluskey, J. Mikesell, S. Powers, U. Rao, E. Sennoga, D. Sioquist, E. Slack, T. Tiits, S. Tsui, S. Wallace, and C. Zorn

Students of public finance and fiscal decentralization in developing and transitional countries have long argued for more intensive use of the property tax. It would seem the ideal choice for financing local government services. Based on a Lincoln Institute conference held in October 2006, the chapters in this book draw on recent experience with property tax policy and administration to analyze and discuss the numerous advantages of the property tax as a local government revenue source, as well as the many perceived disadvantages.

Property Tax Assessment Limits Lessons from Thirty Years of Experience


Mark Haveman and Terri A. Sexton Since 1978, when California adopted its groundbreaking tax limitation measure known as Proposition 13, pressure has persisted for other states to adopt various forms of property tax relief, in periods of both rising and declining values. By severing the connection between property values and property taxes, assessment limits impose widely differing tax obligations on owners of identical property, reduce economic growth by distorting taxpayer decision making, and reduce the transparency and accountability of the property tax system as a whole. This policy focus report examines better alternatives for timely and efficient aid to needy taxpayers.

The Property Tax-School Funding Dilemma


Daphne A. Kenyon States experiencing taxpayer revolts are tempted to reduce reliance on the property tax to fund schools. But a more targeted approach can provide property tax relief and improve state funding for public education. This policy focus report includes a comprehensive review of recent research on both property tax and school funding, and summarizes case studies of seven statesCalifornia, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, and Texas. The majority of these states rely heavily on property tax revenues to fund schools. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, the report recommends addressing property taxes and school funding separately.

Progress and Poverty


Henry George Subtitled An Inquiry into the Cause of Industrial Depressions and of Increase of Want with Increase of Wealth . . . The Remedy, this classic book presents Georges theories based on the concept that equality of access to land is the principal solution to economic injustice. George proposed removing all taxes on labor, business, and trade, and taxing only the value of land to provide enough revenue for government and to reduce speculation, thus benefiting both the individual and the community.

International Land Policy


LAND POLICY CONFERENCE SERIES
Since 2006 the Lincoln Institute has held an annual conference designed to address international trends and issues in land policy. The conferences explore timely themes and raise awareness about the interactions among various public finance, taxation, planning, and property rights issues and their effects on land policy decision making. The Institutes goal in publishing this Land Policy Series of annual conference papers is to make innovative ideas generated from careful land policy research available to academics and practitioners around the world.

New! Infrastructure and Land Policies


Edited by Gregory K. Ingram and Karin L. Brandt
Contributors: A. Anas, J. A. Beecher, M. E. de Bruijn, G. R. Clarke, G. C. Cornia, D. J. Crapo, L. N. Dyble, T. Hiramatsu, N. Green Leigh, V. A. Matheson, R. Picciotto, A. Ramaswami, F. Rioja, K. Sierra, Y. Song, and L. C. Walters

More than 50 percent of the global population resides in urban areas where the interactions between land policy and infrastructure facilitate economic opportunities, affect the quality of life, and condition patterns of urban development. The challenges of balancing urban growth with infrastructure development and maintenance are reflected in debates about infrastructures finance, regulation, and location and about the sustainable levels of its services. This volume, based on the 2012 seventh annual Land Policy Conference, brings together academics and practitioners who are economists, social scientists, urban planners, and engineers to discuss how issues impact low-, middle-, and high-income countries.

Value Capture and Land Policies


Edited by Gregory K. Ingram and Yu-Hung Hong
Contributors: J. E. Anderson, P. Booth, J. Cordes, S. Culp, C. Deuskar, S. Fainstein, D. Hunting, M. Luger, D. Misczynski, J. Murakami, B. Sanyal, P. Shapiro, R. Voith, S. Wachter, L. Walters, L. Wolf-Powers, and A. Zhang

Value capture refers to a type of public financing where increases in private land values generated by public investments are captured or recouped by the public sector, rather than by individuals, to help pay for the initial investment needed for that development. This approach works in various ways and can take the form of taxes on the land owners, real estate taxes, or even impact fees. Addressing value capture in the United States, Britain, France, India, Tokyo, and Hong Kong, this book covers the conceptual frameworks and history of value capture; land value capture instruments; and specific applications for housing, community land trusts, transit, and science parks.

Developing policies that will keep climate change in check has become a global priority, as increasing greenhouse gas emissions contribute to extreme weather patterns. If these emissions remain unabated, changes in global temperatures and the subsequent relocation of human settlements and economic activities will have huge economic and social impacts on the worlds population. The 2010 annual Land Policy Conference provided a forum for international scholars and policy makers to discuss topics including the impacts of climate change on land use; how energy and climate change policies affect land resource allocation and land use planning; relationships among urban form, transportation, and CO2 emissions; market-based approaches to environmental conservation; and global ability to deal with climate change and land management.

Based on the proceedings of Lincoln Institutes fourth annual land policy conference, this book analyzes municipal revenue instruments such as intergovernmental transfers, property tax, tax increment financing, and local option sales and income taxes. It also examines other nontraditional public good financing mechanisms including homeowners associations, impact fees, debt financing, and public-private partnerships. The analysis compares the viability of these municipal revenue sources in the face of fiscal uncertainty.

Fiscal Decentralization and Land Policies


Edited by Gregory K. Ingram and Yu-Hung Hong
Contributors: E. Ahmad, R. Bahl, G. Brosio, L. DeMello, W. Fischel, S. Gerking, S. Guimaraes, J. Martinez-Vazquez, D. McMillen, T. Nechyba, R. Nelson, C. Sepulveda, H. Sigman, L. Singell, P. Smoke, B. Tanzi, S. Wallace, and C. Zinnes

Fiscal decentralization gives local governments powers to set taxes, make expenditures, and, in many countries, regulate land uses within guidelines set by higher authorities. Understanding the degree to which local and provincial governments can exercise these powers, and are held accountable for outcomes, is crucial for understanding land policy. Three key themes emerged from this second conference: the extent and effectiveness of local service provision under decentralization; connections between decentralization and local policies; and the effects of intergovernmental transfers on local fiscal behavior.

Land Policies and Their Outcomes


Edited by Gregory K. Ingram and Yu-Hung Hong
Contributors: D. Barker, E. Belsky, E. L. Birch, R. M. Bird, S. C. Bourassa, K. E. Case, D. Dowall, R. W. England, E. L. Glaeser, P. Hall, D. McCue, R. Mohan, T. J. Nechyba, A. J. Plantinga, J. M. Quigley, E. Slack, and X. D. Zhu

In June 2006, the Lincoln Institute held the first in a series of land policy conferences to address international trends and issues. The goals of this conference were to raise awareness of the importance of land policy in shaping international urban development and to explore topics in urban economics and planning that might have significant policy implications. The chapters examine five themes: public actions and property prices; the importance of land value in todays economy; land and property taxation; urban development and revitalization; and new developments in land and housing markets.

New! Financing Metropolitan Governments in Developing Countries
Edited by Roy Bahl, Johannes F. Linn, and Deborah L. Wetzel
Contributors: R. Bird, K. L. Brandt, R. Franzsen, M. E. Freire, G. K. Ingram, H. Kharas, Z. Liu, J. Martinez-Vazquez, W. McCluskey, A. M. Pethe, A. Shah, E. Slack, P. Smoke, I. Sud, S. Yilmaz, S. Yusuf, and C. P. Wong

This volume examines the challenges that rapid growth poses for financing infrastructure and social services within the context of fragmented governmental responsibility in developing countries. It assesses how various metropolitan revenue instruments can be designed and implemented, how intergovernmental transfers should be structured, and how public and private resources can be combined to meet the urgent needs of metropolitan infrastructure and slum improvement with specific case studies of urban financing mechanisms in China, India, and Brazil.

New! Atlas of Urban Expansion


Shlomo Angel, Jason Parent, Daniel L. Civco, and Alejandro M. Blei The worlds urban population is expected to increase from 3.5 billion in 2010 to 6.2 billion in 2050, most of which will occur in less-developed countries. This book is an empirical and methodological resource for tracking emergent patterns of urban spatial reconfiguration in 120 of the worlds major cities. Using a measuring technique that integrates urban land cover, density, fragmentation levels, and compactness, the authors provide data, evidence, and maps to illuminate the changing urban landscapes. This information will help local and national governments, international organizations, and concerned citizens prepare for and ensure orderly development of more efficient and sustainable cities. The data and maps are also available for free online at http://www.lincolninst.edu/subcenters/atlas-urban-expansion.

New! Planet of Cities


Shlomo Angel This book, and its companion, the Atlas of Urban Expansion, develops a science of global cities based on studying the cities together to prepare them for coming expansion instead of seeking to contain it. It questions the main tenets of the familiar Containment Paradigm, also known as smart growth and urban growth management, in a global perspective and shows it to be deficient in addressing the central questions facing expanding cities outside the United States and Europe, particularly in Asia and Africa. The volume provides the conceptual framework, basic empirical data, and practical agenda necessary for the minimal yet meaningful management of the urban expansion process.

Making Room for a Planet of Cities


Shlomo Angel with Jason Parent, Daniel L. Civco, and Alejandro M. Blei This policy focus report provides a conceptual framework for understanding urban expansion, analyzes quantitative dimensions of past, present, and future urban land cover, and suggests the making room paradigm as a more realistic strategy for cities that need to prepare for their inevitable growth. This approach presents realistic projections of urban land needs; generous metropolitan limits; selective protection of open space; and an arterial grid of roads spaced one kilometer apart that can also support public transit. The report lays the foundation for discussion of the fate of our cities and our planet as we seek to identify appropriate strategies for managing urban expansion at sustainable densities.

Analyzing Land Readjustment Economics, Law, and Collective Action


Edited by Yu-Hung Hong and Barrie Needham
Contributors: R. Alterman, B. Davy, W. Doebele, L. H. Li, X. Li, L. Sagalyn, and A. Sorensen

Great effort has been devoted to the delineation and assignment of the legal and physical boundaries of private property. Yet, issues of assembling private property rights for urban redevelopment remain understudied. This book explores alternatives to voluntary exchange or public intervention in the form of expropriation. It also discusses international opportunities for facilitating cooperative land readjustment through legal, social, and cultural issues, and new experiments with urban renewal and redevelopment.

Chinas economic development and rapid growth have resulted in considerable damage to the natural environment, yet China is addressing these issues through regulation and enforcement. This volume, based on a May 2010 conference sponsored by the Lincoln Institute, tackles a range of environmental issues and policies in urban China. Leading scholars discuss current policies and regulations; government decentralization and environmental protection; urban development; industrial air pollution and household greenhouse gas emissions; and transportation systems.

Since the housing reform in 1998 that abandoned Chinas old system of linking housing distribution with employment, the housing market has experienced rapid development and is a significant source of economic activity for the Chinese government. This volume explains Chinas residential construction boom and reviews how some established trends are likely to challenge Chinas housing sector in coming years.

Chinas Local Public Finance in Transition

Chinas economy has developed rapidly since the 1978 economic reforms that facilitated investment, expanded trade, and introduced market practices, but public finance reforms have proceeded more slowly. Changes implemented in 1994 shifted a large share of fiscal revenues from local governments to the central government, but they did not substantially reassign expenditure responsibilities back to the center.

New! Improving the Performance of the Property Tax in Latin America


Claudia M. De Cesare Property taxation is of central importance in Latin America, where the tax remains the best way to support local public expenditures. However, there is great diversity in property tax administration among Latin American countries, and most have a poor performance in efficient tax collection. This report focuses on three areas of reform: fiscal policy, tax policies, and assessment practices and collection procedures. It provides financial, legal, and administrative data on jurisdictions along with indicators on tax performance as a revenue source, efficiency in tax collections, assessment practices, and use of cadastres. The information is constantly updated on the Lincoln Institute website at http://www.lincolninst.edu/subcenters/property-tax-in-latin-america.

Regularization of Informal Settlements in Latin America
Edsio Fernandes In large Latin American cities, informal settlements may be the result of low income, unrealistic urban planning, lack of serviced land or social housing, or a dysfunctional legal system. Whether established on public or private land, they develop irregularly and often do not have critical public services such as sanitation, resulting in health and environmental hazards. This policy focus report identifies issues and offers recommendations for improving regularization policy.
