What are transportation impact fees used for?

Transportation Impact Fees may only be used for building new arterial streets, sidewalks, bicycle lanes, and other physical improvements to the City’s multi-modal transportation network.  New development and redevelopment means more people making capacity demands on the transportation system and the collected Transportation Impact Fee money may be used for publicly-funded city-wide transportation projects on municipal Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs) that are reasonably related to the impacts of development and urban growth.  Menlo Park’s Transportation Impact Fees are collected and allocated to transportation projects that add multi-modal capacity to the overall transportation network.  Transportation Impact Fees cannot be used for street maintenance, transportation, administration, or transportation demand-management programs, such as car-pooling, incentives for non-auto commuting, or additional transit bus service hours.
