In anticipation of growth pressures associated with Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) activities at Aberdeen Proving Ground, the City of Aberdeen sought to estimate the impacts of new development on the City's infrastructure and services. Drawing on the approach of Burchell and Listokin and impact fee studies by Tischler and Associates, IGSR developed a model to estimate the impacts on capital and operating budgets and to establish development impact fees. Designed to handle commercial, residential, and mixed-use development, the model was applied to five proposed developments then under review by the City of Aberdeen.
