Roadway Impact Fee Program

ROADWAY IMPACT FEE

Purpose

The purpose of a Roadway Impact Fee program is to provide a funding mechanism for identified capital transportation improvements over a 10-year planning period and to ensure that new development is paying a fair share of the cost for those improvements.

background

During fiscal year 2013-14, it was determined that the City of Schertz desired to institute a Roadway Impact Fee Program in order to generate revenue to fund certain roadway construction projects. In preparation, an update to the City's Master Thoroughfare Plan was prepared and adopted in July 2017. As a basis for calculation of an impact fee, City Council adopted a set of Land Use Assumptions and a Roadway Capital Improvement Plan in November 2017.

process

Impact Fee Program development, adoption, and implementation is governed by Texas Local Government Code Chapter 395.

The Capital Improvement Advisory Committee (CIAC) is required to make a recommendation to City Council regarding the fee assessment policies and amount to be charged.  Input is being solicited from various City boards and commissions and members of the development community and will be considered during the policy deliberation by the CIAC and City Council.  City Council will schedule a Public Hearing on the Impact Fee after which the program will be considered.

Dates, times, and locations of meetings open to the public will be added here as agendas are posted. Check back regularly for updates.
