An Economic Analysis of Alternative Development Options in Coastal Marshlands Areas
PIs: Warren Kriesel (Ag & Applied Econ, University of Georgia, Athens, GA) and Jeff Mullen (Ag & Applied Econ, University of Georgia, Athens, GA)
Support: Georgia Sea Grant College Program, R/CED-2
Timeframe: 3/1/06 - 1/31/10
To identify important price determinants in coastal real estate markets with appropriate statistical and GIS tools, with particular attention to marshland environments.
To improve the information base on development alternatives available to public officials and private developers.
The project has been leveraged into a one-year agreement with the Coastal Resources Division of the Georgia DNR. The project will result in the production of a new economics chapter in the Green Growth Guidelines, and a website that presents economic decision tools for land developers, lenders, homeowners and local governments.
