The Subcommittee established a two step process to begin to analyze the environmental and economic impacts of residential development. Its objective is to determine if there are significantly different economic and environmental costs that can be attributed to different types, forms, and locations of residential development. In particular, the Subcommittee has decided to investigate how the capital cost per dwelling unit of providing services and infrastructure, specifically public services and infrastructure, varies according to type, form, and location of new residential development. As a next step, the Subcommittee will be investigating the specific water-quality impacts of various forms and patterns of development.
