Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


New development impacts on facilities in more ways than requiring new or expanded facilities to serve it. It may create new demands for operation or maintenance (O & M) than it generates in new revenues to cover. This chapter explores four ways to handle this problem using proportionate-share fee approaches. The first is an impact fee directly for the purpose of generating revenues to finance O & M—the transit impact development fee (TIDF)-used for a generation in San Francisco. The second is a transportation utility fee (TUF), which is based on a proportionate-share calculation applied to all land uses to generate funds annually to cover transportation O & M costs, akin to an enterprise fund for water and wastewater facilities. The third is the stormwater utility fee (SUF), which also acts like an enterprise fund. The fourth is in the context of stormwater maintenance.
