New working paper

Another Depken production rolls off the line, this time in cahoots with Carolyn Dehring and John Chamblee:

Watershed Development Restrictions and Land Prices: Empirical Evidence from Southern Appalachia

The State of North Carolina’s Water Supply Watershed Protection Act of 1989 required local governments to adopt land use measures in watersheds to protect the water supply emanating from the watersheds. Watershed protection ordinances typically contain minimum lot size restrictions that constrain development density in the watershed. We examine vacant land prices in the Ivy River Watershed of Buncombe County, NC, at the time such regulation took effect. Our results suggest that costs of watershed development restrictions are borne primarily by those vacant land owners in the watershed for whom the development restrictions make land subdivision infeasible.
