STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 16681 This bill would require local units of government to enter into agreements with the Idaho Transportation Department to collect and expend development impact fees when it is determined that a proposed development has an impact on a facility under the jurisdiction of the Idaho Transportation Department. The department would be required to follow all existing rules and regulations requiring the funds collected through impact fees to be spent in the area of impact in which they are collected. The department may only collect impact fees in partnership with local units of government and not as an independent entity. FISCAL NOTE It is estimated that this bill could bring up to $7 million to the Idaho Transportation Department to address traffic, congestion and safety issues in the areas of impact in which the fees are collected.
