Transportation development charge


Transportation System Development Charge (TSDC)

Help inform the TSDC update and project list 

by February 26th via this Online Open House


tsdc easel   We are updating our Transportation System Development Charge (TSDC) program. Projects on the TSDC list are oriented toward accommodating development growth and improving travel for all modes: walking, biking, driving and transit. The current list was last updated in 2007. Some of the projects on that list are now complete, some have received funding from other sources, and some of them may no longer fit the city’s transportation priorities. Every few years, the City engages in an extensive public input process to reaffirm and amend the list of projects to guide spending of TSDC revenues. As part of this process, the project team is also revisiting the criteria that determine whether projects are eligible for TSDC funding.

The current TSDC update process began in mid 2016 and is expected to end in July 2017.  The update includes three main components:

1. Updating the list of projects eligible for TSDC funding

2. Refining the methodology for calculating TSDC charges

3. Reevaluating the rates that developers pay
