Our approach to regional economics and urban planning consulting incorporates bottom-line market realities into public policy and planning decisions. RCG Economics is comprised of urban economists, planners and real estate analysts. Our team has combined expertise in regional and urban growth issues, public planning, economic modeling, land use planning, fiscal and economic benefit analysis, industry economics and socioeconomic forecasting.

RCG Economics provides a wide variety of services to both public- and private-sector entities. The foundation of the practice is the use of sound economic principles to understand and help solve urban policy problems for our clients.

Much of our work involves the analysis of the forces causing economic and demographic changes within a region or urban area.
