Last week, three government staffers from Fate, TX led an excellent, educational webcast for Strong Towns members about how to do the math on proposed developments in your town. Michael Kovacs, Justin Weiss and Will Rugeley shared their approach to doing Planning Commission and City Council briefings on new proposed developments that include a basic, yet effective, fiscal sustainability analysis.
The webcast is now public so please check it out below and share with local leaders in your own community. How might you use this knowledge to encourage fiscally sound planning in your town?
