This study develops a methodology for assessing a fee to new development that is based on trip generation factors. This methodology is to account for all new trips from residential, industrial and commercial activities and assess each of these activities in an equitable manner. The method is part of the County's Growth Management policy. The methods and problems of seven other jurisdictions with respect to development fees for transportation improvements are included. The case studies show that while many fees are similar, the success of policies differ considerably. A review attempts to compare and contrast each of the fee systems, pointing to the advantages and disadvantages. A recommended procedure is developed and methods for its implementation are discussed. The County will also be preparing cost estimates for existing and future arterial and collector road systems. These cost estimates will then be applied against the assessment methodology to determine trip fee rates.
