May 4, 2016

The Land Use Baseline is a representation of future development based on how the market responds to development capacities established in local jurisdictions’ pre-VISION 2040 comprehensive plans. Land Use Baseline uses PSRC’s UrbanSim model.

PSRC creates two growth projections to model the outcomes of different policy choices in small geographies. Land Use Baseline is one of them; Land Use Vision is the other. Land Use Vision is a growth projection based on local and regional policies, as well as each county’s adopted growth targets. PSRC uses Land Use Vision for planning and modeling work.
