Marriott (1997) explains, The discussion of land-use and development impacts are often combined with community effects, relocations, travel patterns, and economic effects under an umbrella term of socioeconomic impacts (p. 61). Choose one of these socioeconomic factors, which are found in Chapters 5 through 9, and address the following three topics in detail:
- Discuss the importance of evaluating the chosen factor, including the consequences that might result from failure to consider the chosen socioeconomic impact on the community.
- Describe any difficulties that might be present when determining the cumulative impacts.
- Provide and discuss an example of how the socioeconomic factor chosen has affected your community due to a project within your local area.
