The city has established a traffic impact fee for the Westside neighborhood. Revenue generated through the collection of impact fees is helping to fund the construction of the arterial street system that serves this area of the city. Only a portion of the costs of these improvements are funded through the impact fee, with the remainder covered by the city's general fund.
On March 1, 2016, the City Council adopted an increase to the traffic impact fee, which will go from $76.93 to $78.56 per average daily vehicle trip.
Collection of Fees
Traffic impact fees are collected at the time that building permits are issued for new development within this area, and are based on the projected amount of traffic that will be generated by the proposed use.
