As our city grows, we need to make sure that our transit system is growing with it. I introduced legislation to require that new residential development pay transit impact development fees to reflect the transportation impacts of new development. Funds generated by the fee are invested in transit improvements. Our current transit impact development fee has a blanket exemption for residential development, meaning even a massive residential development does not automatically pay the fee. This legislation closes that exemption and ensures that as we grow as a city - including adding much-needed housing - our transportation systems grow as well. Adding housing without transit capacity and reliability improvements is a recipe for a big mess. You can read about this long overdue legislation here.
