Dena and Alison are attending the Design Fort Ord Charrette this month. The goal of this charrette is to develop design guidelines to ensure that future development on the former Fort Ord army base supports the cohesive, sustainable reuse of the base, while maintaining the visual character of the Monterey Peninsula which plays a major role in supporting the area’s attractiveness as a destination for many visitors every year. Strategic Economics’ role has been to provide the economic analysis necessary to ensure that the guidelines will be implementable given current real estate market conditions, while also allowing for the flexibility to respond to unanticipated development opportunities in the longer term. Dena is presenting at the Work-in-Progress Presentation this Wednesday. She also spoke in January at the Fort Ord Trails Symposium about the economic benefits of improved transportation connectivity.

It’s great to see our work in the news! A recent article in the San Francisco Chronicle praised the Warm Springs/South Fremont Community Plan. Strategic Economics partnered with Economic & Planning Systems to provide the economic and market support for that plan, including an in-depth examination of local, national, and global industry trends impacting this significant industrial site located in the central Bay Area. By clarifying the area’s critical role as a future, central, transit-accessible employment center, the analysis helped lay the groundwork for the plan’s emphasis on accommodating job growth.

Tues10-11:30 Value Capture: Myth or Reality? (w/Nadine)
Capturing the value of public transit investments can be a tricky business. Everybody has a vested interest. Everyone wants a piece of the pie. Value capture strategies include joint development, special assessment districts, tax increment financing and development impact fees. But how much of the value actually makes it back to the transit agency? Where have these strategies been successful and why? What does the FTA think about value capture? Explore the concepts of value capture, learn from real projects and hear the latest thinking directly from the FTA.
