US Congressional Research Service

Higher taxes on land lower taxation of improvements would help stimulate development and redevelopment. Holders of sites in and around the center would be induced to develop their land or sell it to those who will, so there would be less leap-frogging out beyond the fringes. Reduced fringe development would reduce the cost of providing public services and increase the conservation of green areas and op0en space surrounding the city. *(1971)
