1. Mamun, Md Shahid. Impact Analysis of Site Development and Mileage Fee.

Degree: PhD, Civil Engineering - Civil and Coastal Engineering, 2012, University of Florida

This dissertation focuses on two types of impact studies: one is related to site developments; the other examines the socioeconomic effects of mileage fees. More specifically, in the first part, the link distribution percentage and special generator methods for performing traffic impact analysis are compared and enhanced; and in the second part, the impacts of adopting a mileage fee in Florida are assessed. In Florida, both the link distribution percentage and special generator methods are used to conduct traffic impact analysis. However, there is no systematic research to show whether these two methods produce similar results or if one outperforms the other. This dissertation describes an empirical study that compares these two methods. Based on the study, these two methods are observed to produce fairly consistent estimates of traffic impacts caused by the chosen hypothetical scenarios. As the link distribution percentage approach is easier to implement,this dissertation recommends this less cumbersome approach. However, both of the above mentioned approaches estimate development trips on each link from the path flow or origin-destination (O-D) specific link flow distribution. Since these two flow distributions may not be uniquely determined, an open question remains regarding the selection of a particular flow distribution as the basis for traffic impact studies. This dissertation suggests using the mean of all the path or O-D specific user equilibrium solutions as the basis for traffic impact studies. The second part of the dissertation examines the impacts of implementing mileage fees in Florida. Four different mileage fee structures are tested. The result shows that the distributional impacts of the revenue-neutral fee are negligible. However, flat fees are found to be regressive at higher rates. In contrast, step fee, a two-level tariff structure is found to be less regressive. Fees based on vehicle fuel efficiency and vehicle type are found to be environmentally friendly, but areas regressive as flat fees. This dissertation suggests that a complex mileage fee structure is needed to balance the spatial distribution of the impacts,reduce the regressive nature of the fee, generate sufficient revenue, protect the environment, and achieve other objectives simultaneously.

2. Van Holm, Eric Joseph. Minor league metropolis: Urban redevelopment surrounding minor league baseball stadiums.

Degree: PhD, Public Policy, 2017, Georgia Tech

Special Activity Generators have been a redevelopment tool utilized by governments in order to revitalize lethargic downtowns. For small and mid-sized cities, minor league baseball stadiums have become a popular anchor development as a type of Special Activity Generator; while sports facilities are well studied, minor league stadiums have not been the focus of significant research. My dissertation uses a sequential explanatory mixed methodology to answer whether minor league baseball stadiums are successful as Special Activity Generators. I first use a quantitative analysis of sixteen stadiums built around the year 2000 that shows a large effect for the areas around the stadium compared to the rest of the city. However, that growth is created by concentrating redevelopment, not creating new activity. Two case studies clarify that the stadiums were critical to the observed redevelopment efforts, but also highly the need for thorough planning and collocated amenities prior to construction in order to maximize the results from the public investment.
