Transportation Impact Fees Work Session

Topic Description:

The State enabling legislation regarding transportation impact fees has changed with the recent enactment of HB 3202, which was associated with transportation impact fees, transportation districts (e.g., Northern Virginia), and urban development areas. The legislation’s effective date was July 1, 2007.  The September 13, 2007, work session will focus on the State legislative changes affecting the analyses, modeling, amendments to the Comprehensive Plan, and the process through which the actual implementation of transportation impact fees for designated areas must proceed.

Staff is also prepared to:

o   highlight our progress with the Bealeton, Opal, Marshall and Remington Service Districts;

o   explain the justification for Board consideration of adding the New Baltimore Service District; and

o   discuss the need for the Impact Fee Advisory Committee, required in §15.2-2319 of the Virginia Code. 

Prior to the adoption of the transportation impact fee ordinance, the Board of Supervisors is required to establish and appoint the referenced Committee, which would serve in an advisory capacity to assist and advise the Board with regard to any proposed Ordinance and its associated transportation impact fees.  The Committee must be composed of not less than five or more than ten members, with at least 40% of the membership being from the development, building or real estate industries.
