Public Facilities Impact Fees and
Capital Improvement Plan



                                  June 17, 2008
Challenge
 As County population grows            greater demands for County
  services occur.

 Greater service demands require additional/expanded facilities to
  house/equip the services and service providers.

 The County has identified a Capital need of approximately $1.4
  billion.

 Staff has identified a Capital Improvement Program of
  approximately $483 million over the next 5 years.

 Where will the needed funding come from?

 County General Plan policy PF-B.1 “development shall pay it’s fair
  share for developing new facilities”.                              1
Funding
 A.Current Government Financial Landscape in California
   for funding improvements and expansion of County
   facilities is very limited.
  Proposition 13 eliminated a major source of funding.
  Federal and State Grants, are very rare.
  The County does not have sufficient general fund
   revenues to meet these demands.
  Impact Fees are one small source that may be used to
   fund only growth related impacts.



                                                          2
Funding    (continued).

 B.BBR dated June 6, 2005 – Recommendation for
   implementation of Impact Fees Ordinance.
  Possibility of generating funds for facilities expansion
     through levy of facilities impact fees.
  Counties have legal authority to levy impact fees under
     the Mitigation Fee Act.
  A recent survey indicated that at least 24 counties in
     California levy some form of facilities impact fees.

 C.On June 14, 2005, Board authorized MuniFinancial to
   complete a Public Facilities Impact Fees Report.



                                                              3
MuniFinancial Report

       Libraries
                               Health and Human Services

  b.Developed a financial model: $value of existing facilities
    ÷ population served = $/person.
  c.Population served varies by each category.
                                                                 4
