Closing a Loophole in the Transit Development Impact Fee

The Board of Supervisors recently passed legislation I authored to close a loophole in the fee developers pay to account for the transit impacts of new development. San Francisco is experiencing an unprecedented development boom, with significant housing and commercial space being added as our city's population and job base grow. As we add this development, our public transportation infrastructure and capacity must keep up. Muni currently lacks capacity - due to years of short-sighted transit under-investment by policy makers - to meet current demands, let alone future increased demand as our city grows to a million residents and many more jobs, and we must aggressively invest to shore up the system and expand its capacity. Our transit impact development fee contained a loophole that would have allowed some large or insects in Mission Bay to avoid the fee. My legislation closes that loophole and ensures that projects pay their fair share.
