Transportation Impact Fees

Aerial View Barker Corridor ReducedThe city adopted Ordinance Number 22-005 in April 2022, an ordinance adopting the South Barker Corridor Transportation Impact Fee Study and the Mirabeau and North Pines Road Subarea Transportation Impact Fee Rate Study (PDF). Impact fees are an authorized mechanism for developments to pay their proportionate impact on the services and infrastructure.

Impact Fee Rate Studies

The city analyzed traffic impacts for three areas: South Barker Corridor (Mission Avenue to the city limits to the south), Mirabeau Subarea (mainly adjacent to the Mirabeau Park area between Trent Avenue and Mission Avenue east of Pines Road), and North Pines Road Subarea (Trent Avenue to approximately Valleyway Avenue).  These efforts were made to determine potential impact fees related to development generally in the areas of the City with the highest growth potential. Engineering consultant Fehr & Peers completed the South Barker Transportation Impact Fee Rate Study (PDF) in September 2020. The Mirabeau & North Pines Road Subarea Transportation Impact Fee Rate Study was completed in June, 2021, with the most recent update in January, 2022. Overall, these studies identified 12 recommended projects with a total cost of $26.5 million, of which $7.6 million could be proportionately funded by impact fees.
