Economic Analysis and Land Use Policy, Proceedings of the Fourth Workshop in the Environmental Policy and Economics Workshop Series

These are the proceedings from a one-day workshop jointly sponsored by the US EPA Office of Economy and Environment and the National Center for Environmental Research and Quality Assurance. The first session, "Brownfields and Property Values," focused on better measurement of private land values in the presence of environmental damages and urban infill versus greenfield development. In the afternoon, Session 2, "Land Use and Tradeoffs in Rural Areas," explored examples of tradeoffs in public and private land values, involving open space, recreation, timber, species habitat and soil conservation. The day concluded with a discussion of innovative approaches to land use, which can be found under Session 3 below. The full agenda for the workshop is available.
