Fiscal Impact Analysis of Future Development - Comprehensive Plan Update

BERK developed a fiscal planning model that allowed the City to evaluate the potential fiscal impacts of future development in Black Diamond. The project included assessment of long-term fiscal conditions, which included revenue projections, analysis of public service and capital costs, and fiscal impacts of alternative development scenarios.

We also surveyed comparable cities, assessed and revisited current level-of-service standards, and worked with key stakeholders to develop fiscal mitigation options. As part of the project we prepared a capital facilities element for the City’s Comprehensive Plan.
