Community Development Agency (CDA) Long Range Planning Division presenting a workshop to begin the preparation of the 2014 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), and requesting direction on the Board’s preferred growth projection option for the CIP and Traffic Impact Mitigation Fee (TIM) Fee Program updates.
