The following are brief summaries recent Value Capture applications employed by local governments.
The city of Pflugerville is considering implementing roadway impact fees to help offset costs of future development. The City Council on Tuesday February 25, 2020 approved a contract for an engineering firm to conduct a study on the fees, which are assessed to developers for roads and other infrastructure related to infrastructure improvements in the area that is expected to grow over the next 10 years.
Roadway impact fees are imposed 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.
