About the Traffic Impact Fee Program
The Pierce County Council, in Resolution R2001-43s, requested that Public Works work with Planning and Land Services to develop a Traffic Impact Fee (TIF) program and related regulations. On Oct. 3, 2006, the Council passed Ordinance 2006-60s, which authorizes the county to charge traffic impact fees for land development actions. The companion Ordinance 2006-61s, which revises the site-specific roadway requirements for land developers, was also passed by Council on Oct. 3, 2006. The effective date of both ordinances was Jan. 1, 2007.
