Abstract

Abstract Urban growth controls are analyzed from the standpoint of owner-residents to maximize their utility level. The basic framework follows the Brueckner-Lai model [Brueckner, J.K., Lai, F.-C., 1996. Urban growth with resident landowners. Regional Science and Urban Economics 26, 125–143], but effects of production activity, congestion externality, and public good provision, each of which affects actual urban growth control, are incorporated into the models.
