River Street Planning & Development

Economic Development - Build Out Analysis

River Street provides build-out analysis and GIS mapping services for communities as either stand-alone economic development strategies or as part of a community's comprehensive plan. A build-out analysis is a model of a community's potential future, given the status of the land at the time of analysis, the dimensions and characteristics of that land which would affect development (i.e. wetlands, unsuitable soils, excessive slopes, etc.), and regulations that govern the development of the land. The analysis estimates the maximum possible development that is allowed by current regulations on a parcel and within the designated area for analysis. The analysis considers not only the development of vacant land but the potential redevelopment of existing property.
