The Fiscal Impacts of DART's Transit-Oriented Development

The Fiscal Impacts of DART's Transit-Oriented Development

Date: April 16, 2007
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report discusses the fiscal impacts of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit's (DARTs) transit-oriented development. In 2005, the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research prepared a report for DART in which they estimated the total value of new investment completed, underway or planned near DART LRT stations since 1999. Using only those projects reported to the press, they calculated the total value of the transit-oriented development (TOD) at approximately $3.3 billion. These new investments had had, or will have, significant impacts on local property taxes as well as local and state sales taxes. This report presents the preliminary assessment of the annual revenue streams associated with TOD adjacent to DART LRT stations.

DART's Sales Tax Revenues: A Review and Outlook

DART's Sales Tax Revenues: A Review and Outlook

Date: November 2004
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report discusses the DART systems' sales tax revenues. In addition to the fare box, DART's operations are funded through a one percent sales tax levied by member cities on all retail transactions as permitted by state law. During the 1990s, DART's sales tax receipts grew at a healthy clip. But between 2001 and 2003, taxable sales in the DART service area declined. By contrast, for many non-DART suburban cities, taxable sales continued to expand during the 2001-2003 period. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, looks at three possible explanations for these trends.

The Impact of Higher Natural Gas Prices on the Texas Economy

The Impact of Higher Natural Gas Prices on the Texas Economy

Date: July 2000
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, discusses the economic effect of rising gas prices on the Texas economy. It surmises that although rising natural gas prices are a boon to gas drilling, production and distribution industries and their employees, the resulting higher costs to Texas industries and households more than offset any gains. Each $1 per MCF increase in the price of natural gas - if sustained - has the net effect of decreasing state economic activity by at least $3.4 billion per year, lowering total employment by more than 34,000, and reducing salaries and wages by $911 million.
