Body
DISCUSSION/BACKGROUND
On December 6, 2016, the Board adopted the Major Update to the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) and TIM Fee Program as required by the General Plan and in compliance with state law (Item 46). The 2016 Major Update to the CIP and TIM Fee Program was adopted by Resolution 191-2016. General Plan Implementation Measure TC-B, Resolution 191-2016, and County Ordinance No. 5045 (Ordinance 5045) state that the fee program shall be updated annually for changes in project costs.

TIM Fees shall be set and updated by a resolution as adopted by the Board, and administered via a TIM Fee Administration Manual.”

The TIM Fees have been adjusted three times since the 2016 Major Update, on December 12, 2017 (Item 26) for the annual update, on June 26, 2018 (Item 60) for a Technical Update to address changes of methodology in the latest edition of the Highway Capacity Manual, and on May 14, 2019 (Item 40) for the annual update.

The purpose of today’s hearing is to adopt the 2020 Annual Update to the TIM Fee Program, which adjusts project costs.
