July 11, 2006 Public Hearing:

  1. Transportation Services Fee

The Department of Public Works is proposing to establish a Transportation Services Fee in accordance with the City’s General Plan and to satisfy General Plan Environmental Impact Report (EIR) Mitigation Measure TRN-2b. The Department of Public Works has prepared a Transportation Services Fee (TSF) Nexus Study, as required by California Government Code §66000, that determines the impacts of development on the City’s transportation infrastructure over the next 20 years, the cost of mitigating those impacts, and the resulting fee that the City can legally assess development projects.

The proposed fee is $2,543 for each new motor vehicle trip generated during a typical PM peak hour. Certain changes of use and priority land uses from adopted City plans would pay reduced fees, and other projects would be exempt from the fee. The City is also proposing to phase in the fees over thirty months after adoption.

Background materials, including the fee nexus study, examples of fee impacts on sample projects, comparison of fees with nearby cities, and a table of proposed new fee rates are available at the City Clerk’s Office and are posted at: http://www.ci.berkeley.ca.us/citycouncil/publichearings/2006/fees.

For further information, please contact Matt Nichols, Principal Planner, at 510-981-7068.
