DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The Department of Transportation (Transportation) has been directed to accelerate the Major Update to the TIM Fee Program and the CIP (see September 17, 2019, Item 32). This is the seventh workshop to discuss policy items related to the implementation of the TIM Fee Program. Two technical memoranda have been prepared by the County’s consultant, DKS & Associates (DKS). Each technical memorandum covers a specific policy subject as it relates to implementation of the TIM Fee Program.

The County’s TIM Fee Program allocates the cost of roadway improvements based on the number of new vehicle trips generated in the PM peak hour for various land use types. For non-residential development, current land use categories include general commercial, hotel/motel/B&B, church, office/medical, and industrial/warehouse.

Most non-residential development generally falls into one of these above listed categories, although a “per trip” fee may be charged when the County determines that use of the categories is not appropriate. This may be due to an uncommon land use or any other factors that, at the County’s sole discretion, render the category unrepresentative of the expected trip generation of the proposed land use.
