Title
Approval of a resolution setting a public hearing to discuss and review the Roadway Impact Fee Study Capital Improvements Plan and Land Use Assumptions.

Summary
In March, City Council authorized staff to begin a Roadway Impact Fee Study. Kimley-Horn and Associates, our consultant for the Transportation Master Plan, is our consultant on this project. This Roadway Impact Fee Study is an analysis necessary for the city in order to consider impact fees related to roadways. Impact fees are funds collected within a service area to pay for roadway improvements that contribute to the capacity of the roadway system.

In May, the Capital Improvement Advisory Committee and the City Council completed the first step in the process is to establish the boundaries of the service areas.

In order to continue moving forward with impact fees, it is necessary to set a public hearing date for the Impact Fee Capital Improvements Plan. Texas Local Government Coder Chapter 395 requires the City Council adopt a resolution to set a public hearing date to consider impact fees. Once the public hearing date is set and prior to thirty days before the date set for the hearing, notice of the hearing shall be published in the newspaper and information for period of projections and a description of the impact fees shall be made available to the public.
