How can regions meet their housing needs while minimizing infrastructure costs and environmental impacts? What options do policy makers have for incentivizing smart growth?
We cordially invite you to a guest webinar on Wednesday, January 24th from 2 to 3 p.m. EST by Michael Wilkerson, Ph.D., Project Director and Senior Economist at ECONorthwest, and Marley Buchman, an Associate at ECONorthwest. They will discuss a study they conducted examining the economic effects of high-density, transit-oriented development.
Dr. Wilkerson and Mr. Buchman will explain how they estimated the supply elasticities of housing and the underproduction of housing from 2000-2015 nationally and for each state. They will review their simulations of different scenarios, comparing current development patterns with high-density housing located close to transit. Based on their analysis, they will evaluate the economic and environmental implications for alternative housing policies.
