Rail-volution: Value Capture: Myth or Reality?

I am moderating (and presenting) on a Rail-Volution panel on Tuesday September 23, 2014 at 10 AM. This is being held in Minneapolis at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in the Minnehaha Room. I will be at the conference much of Tuesday, so email if you want to meet up.
Value Capture: Myth or Reality?     AICP CM 1.5
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.

One thought on “Rail-volution: Value Capture: Myth or Reality?

  1. Consider the following question for moderating duties:

    Considering Ricardian Equivalents, wouldn’t raising the fare have the same economic effects as value capturing without the fancy tax collecting?

    If 20% of the value is attempted to be captured, won’t that decrease by at least the total value created by 20% times (1 + owner expect profit %)?
