The 13th Annual UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium on the Transportation – Land Use – Environment Connection: “Finance: The Critical Link”

Held October 19-21 at UCLA’s Lake Arrowhead Conference Center

Proceedings

The public finance of transportation systems and the public regulation of land use profoundly affect private investment decisions of developers, location decisions of employers and residents, and travel patterns of people and goods. These links between public finance and regulation, and private decisions and behaviors are the subject of this year’s 2003 UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium. This program is part of an annual policy/research symposium series on the connections between transportation, land use, and environmental quality.

The past decade has witnessed significant efforts to better link transportation and land use investments. The connections between land/transportation prices, and private location decisions and travel behavior have received particular attention from both practitioners and researchers. The goal of this symposium is to present, discuss, and debate the most recent developments in the transportation—land use—environment—finance connection.

Finance is a particularly timely topic given the economic recession and the resultant decline in public funding to pay for needed facilities, programs, and services: In California, for example, the state has faced a two-year revenue shortfall in excess of $38 billion. The federal deficit (due to the recession, tax cuts, and increased defense and security spending) is ballooning, and local governments throughout the country find it increasingly difficult to raise sufficient revenues to pay for expanding obligations. Furthermore, the environmental consequences of both expanded and intensified land development and growing personal and commercial travel are potentially significant, and the avoidance/mitigation costs substantial. The challenges to public and private financing of transportation systems, land development, and environmental mitigation—in an era of withering resources—form the backdrop to the 2003 UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium.
