One of a series of reports done under RAND's Urban Policy Analysis Program, this study addresses the problem of developing a cost/resource model for estimating the dollar costs of providing urban services for new housing developments. Of particular interest are developments on the fringes of emerging metropolises such as San Jose, California. The model that is suggested would be distinguished from many urban service models by its emphasis on resource estimation, which makes generalized application possible, and by its flexibility in accommodating to policy variables. For illustrative purposes, the model is carried to completion for sanitary sewers, using the City of San Jose as the context. 54 pp. Ref.
