  • Faculty Opinion: Business incentives, OK, but smarter ones for N.C. — UNC Department of City & Regional Planning
    objectives This is because incentive use at the local level would likely replace state incentive granting Our state incentive programs have relatively strict oversight and clawback measures that ensure that incentive payments are made only if promised job creation materializes Absent these state level programs the local level incentives landscape would essentially become deregulated As a result local communities could become even more vulnerable during negotiations with prospective firms Beyond elimination economic development incentives can be significantly reformed so that our counties and municipalities achieve real and lasting benefits from this public investment Economic development scholars acknowledge incentives are rarely the central factor in business location decisions Still they can tip the balance for a company choosing between places that offer similar locational advantages As a result incentives have the potential to be a powerful tool for influencing local job creation and business investment decisions as long as they re done right When they are practitioners can use them to push companies to meet wage and hiring goals target growth sectors of the economy and fund activities that have greater staying power within a community especially infrastructure or customized training assistance Our state government must remain a strong standard setter The state should maintain strict wage and job quality standards for all businesses getting incentives and avoid relaxing these performance criteria The state should actively partner with local practitioners to help them achieve similar employment standards This is not simply a matter of top down enforcement but rather involves active mentoring and knowledge sharing by the state so that local practitioners have the skills confidence and guidance they need to better defend these standards themselves This includes encouraging localities to experiment with initiatives that tie incentives to local hiring goals and related community benefits good examples can be found in

    between land use development oriented towards Bus Rapid Transit BRT systems through the implementation of land readjustment measures as part of the land use planning framework of both cities Based on BRT oriented development concept which was first introduced in a research project currently leaded by Professor Daniel Rodriguez in DCRP at UNC Chapel Hill the paper also suggest that there are potential links between transportation investments and affordable housing trough LR measures in both cities Land Readjustment across planning cultures a dialogue between Japan and Latin America in urban planning The case of Colombia and Brazil PDF Erik Vergel Abstract Land Readjustment LR has been a key tool for urban development in Japan since the beginning of the 20th century The LR basic idea is the reassembling of land parcels by a new layout plan together with the development of new infrastructures Land contribution by each landowner is essential to utilize newly established infrastructures at the site and to cover the project cost fully or partially LR principles have influenced the urban planning systems of Colombia Law of Territorial Development in 1997 and Brazil Cities Statute in 2002 Land management instruments in Colombia Partial Plans and Brazil Joint Urban Operations include LR principles such as the reassembling of land parcels land contribution and land value capture measures As part of this process the Japanese International Cooperation Agency JICA has built close ties between Japanese Colombian and Brazilian urban planners through capacity building and cooperation projects where the LR method has played an important role On the other hand the paper describes the land use and transportation connection of Bogota and Curitiba as part of the implementation of the Bus Rapid Transit BRT systems in these two cities The present paper discusses this connection between land use and transportation by
