Financing Negative Impacts

Local governments use fiscal impact analysis and reports more and more as a means of compelling new development to mitigate any negative fiscal impact such project may have on the municipality. There are many different reasons why local governments use this analysis ranging from a planning issue to a financial issue. DPFG consultants pride themselves in obtaining a solid foundation of underlying facts to assist the developer in securing a fair outcome in this process. If the project is faced with imposing a negative fiscal impact on the municipality, there are a multitude of financing alternatives that can be used to absorb this cost.
