Activity 10.3: Development Decisions
Your challenge is to determine the best use for approximately 200 acres of undeveloped land located just outside the Outer City of Beijing. The property’s proximity to Beijing makes it desirable for many commercial ventures, but it is also valuable in its undeveloped state as a potential nature preserve.
The property cannot be developed without approval by the city’s land-use committee. Eight groups have come forward with proposals to make use of the land.
