Transportation Impact Fees
State law requires that cities plan for projected growth and have the infrastructure in place to support it within six years. Transportation impact fees are paid by developers and expanding businesses to help cover the cost of road improvements that increase traffic capacity. Money from the fees is tied directly to the size and type of the development and the anticipated increase in traffic associated with the project.
