Pflugerville City Council unanimously approved a motion calling for a roadway impact fee study to be conducted on the city's behalf at council's Feb. 25 meeting. The study, with a $85,000 sticker price, will be conducted by Kimley-Horn.

Roadway impact fees are issued by governments onto developers of new developments to help pay for city infrastructure, dependent on the size of the development and its overall impact on city roadways. Money collected through roadway impact fees can be applied to traffic infrastructure, such as traffic signals, bridges, sidewalks, roadways, thoroughfares, land-acquisition costs, surveying and engineering fees.


The fees are one-time costs issued to developers,
Jake Gutekunst of Kimley-Horn informed council during its item discussion Feb. 25. Transportation impact fees, Gutekunst added, divide cities up into several areas no greater than 6 miles in size and look into improvements underway in the highlighted portion of the city as well as the area's anticipated growth in the next 10 years. From these factors, Gutekunst said council will then determine what the maximum impact fee issuance would be for each development.
