RTMF 2016 Administrative Plan Final - Parsons Brinckerhoff, October 2016
Guidelines and policies for implementation and administration of the Regional Transportation Mitigation Fee Program. RTMF Program funds are used for capital expenditures, including engineering and design costs, environmental documentation, right-of-way acquisition, construction, construction management and administrative costs.
The purpose of the Regional Transportation Mitigation Fee (RTMF) Program is to finance needed improvements to the regional network of streets and roads to mitigate the impact of increased traffic that will result from new development in western Nevada County. The fee program has been adopted by Grass Valley, Nevada City, and Nevada County and is administered by the Nevada County Transportation Commission (NCTC) through agreements with those agencies.
This Annual Report for FY 2018/19 is provided to assist Grass Valley, Nevada City, and Nevada County in complying with the provisions of Government Code Section 66006, which requires each local agency that adopts mitigation fees to provide an annual report and to schedule a public meeting regarding that report.
The RTMF Program, adopted in 2016, established a mitigation fee schedule for regional transportation improvements in western Nevada County. Exhibit 1 shows the Regional Transportation Mitigation Fee area. The fees collected will provide the needed revenue to fund construction of the improvements shown in the RTMF Capital Improvement Program (see Exhibit 2). Exhibit 2 also fulfills the requirements of Section 66006 (b) (1) (F) which requires a local agency to identify the approximate date by which construction of a public improvement will commence.
Exhibit 3 presents a Mitigation Fee Schedule and fulfills the requirements of Section 66006 (b) (1) (B), “The amount of the fee.” To document compliance with Section 66006 (b) (1) (G) and (H), there have been no inter-fund transfers or loans made from the RTMF Fund nor have there been any refunds made pursuant to subdivision (e) of Section 66001 nor allocations pursuant to subdivision (f) of Section 66001.
Exhibit 4, which presents “The beginning and ending balance of the account or fund” fulfills the requirements of Section 66006 (b) (1) (C), Section 66006 (b) (1) (D) “The amount of the fees collected and the interest earned” and Section 66006 (b) (1) (E) “an identification of each public improvement on which fees were expended and the amount of the expenditures on each improvement, including the total percentage of the cost of the public improvement that was funded with fees.”
