Cranberry pioneered in Pennsylvania’s use of Transportation Impact Fees 20 years ago. The fees, which are paid by developers based on the traffic their projects are expected to generate, have been used to fund a variety of local road improvement projects. The list of projects which the fees help to fund has been revised several times since it was first enacted in 1991. But at their November 3 meeting, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors adopted an entirely revised ordinance. The updated law, which included fee increases – although still below the rate of inflation for that period – is based on an approved land use plan, a roadway sufficiency study, an updated list of capital improvements, and a new schedule of fees.
