Fiscal Impact Analysis

In August 2019, SCCOG completed a two-phase “fiscal impact analysis” project, with assistance from firm, 4wardPlanning Inc.

Phase One of this project resulted in a report that examines municipal and report that examines municipal and school-district expenditures and liabilities; the report profiles each community and identifies regional trends.

Phase Two built upon data gathered in Phase One to produce “tools”, individualized for each municipality, that are intended to estimate new tax revenue and municipal and school-district expenditures associated with future residential, commercial, and industrial development, based on inputs from municipal staff.
