In response to concerns about the long-term effects on the economic health of the region and the fiscal well being of local governments, the East-West Gateway Board of Directors directed staff to address three principal questions:

  • How much has the region “spent” on development incentives?
  • What effect has the use of incentives had on local governments’ ability to finance essential public services?
  • Has there been a distributional effect with regard to race and income?

The following resources are referenced throughout the report.  For more information, contact dirr@ewgateway.org .
