David Newburn is the featured speaker at an IURD talk tomorrow, Tuesday, April 4, at 2 p.m. in the IURD conference room at 316 Wurster, UC Berkeley.
Newburn, a research associate at UC Berkeley in Agricultural and Resource Economics, presents "Beyond the Urban Fringe: Modeling Suburban and Rural Residential Development."
Newburn has worked on models of housing development and land-use regulation focusing in particular on how urban growth boundaries and zoning regulations influence home prices and spatial land-use patterns in the rural-urban fringe.
Land-use regulations differentially influence suburban vs. rural residential development. Provision of municipal services, such as sewer and water, and zoned maximum density constrain higher density residential development. Newburn looks at recent housing development in Sonoma County and how the provision of sewer and water services affect suburban and rural development.
Please join us tomorrow for this interesting talk.
