Regional Transportation Mitigation Fee (RTMF)

 

The Regional Transportation Mitigation Fee (RTMF) is an important part of the Measure “C” Extension approved by Fresno County voters in 2006. The RTMF is intended to ensure that future development contributes to its fair share towards the cost of infrastructure to mitigate the cumulative, indirect regional transportation impacts of new growth in a manner consistent with the provisions of the State of California Mitigation Fee Act. The fees will help fund improvements needed to maintain the target level of service in the face of higher traffic volumes brought on by new developments. More information on the Measure “C” Program can be found at: Here
