Market Demand-Based Planning & Permitting Program

Preventing Excessive Development from Undermining the Economy while Protecting Property Rights of Existing Development

A healthy local and regional real estate market is one of the Georgia economy’s essential drivers. As we look ahead to 2018, the nation will be 10 years removed from the Great Recession and the widespread destruction it caused to the U.S. housing market and the nation’s economy. While periodic ‘ups and downs’ in the real estate market may be unavoidable, the authors of Market Demand-Based Planning and Permitting will explain that much can be done to avert the major real estate market failures of the past century.

Developers, lenders, local governments, housing advocates, and homeowners all have a shared interest in making sure that their communities take every reasonable precaution to avoid major real estate market downturns. In this program, the book’s authors will explain the steps that local governments and metropolitan regions must take to protect themselves and their citizens from the next real estate crash.

“An incisive, encyclopedic exposition demonstrating how excessive development helped drive past recessions.  The authors’ solution – market demand based planning and permitting – is an imaginative and thought-provoking one, sure to ignite useful and productive debate.”
– David L. Callies, Benjamin A. Kudo Professor of Law and Regents’ Medalist for Excellence in Teaching, University of Hawaii, William S. Richardson School of Law
