Cost/Benefit and Development Incentive Analyses
Cost/Benefit studies examine the potential fiscal impact of providing a development incentive for proposed developments. Appropriately applied, the provision of a development incentive can be viewed as an investment by local government and, like any other investment, the evaluation of a development incentive should be based on probable return. Inputs for cost/benefit analysis are often derived from a fiscal impact study.
