Abstract:

The Land Use in Central Indiana (LUCI) model forecasts urban development through 2040 and allows users to generate and compare urban development scenarios reflecting different policy choices and assumptions about how development is likely to occur. This report describes four recent projects that illustrate practical uses for the LUCI model in analyzing regional issues.
