Mobility Impact Fund
On September 5, 2019, the City adopted its Mobility Plan and Mobility Fee Schedule to replace the Road Impact Fee previously provided to Palm Beach County. The Mobility Plan provides a blueprint for how the City intends to transition from the movement of cars to the movement of people. The Mobility Fee provides the City with a funding source that it controls to fund a wider range of multimodal improvements to provide residents with alternatives to driving and better address the needs and desires of the community. The Mobility Fee is collected from development within the City and will be spent on projects within the City to provide the benefits to those that pay the fees. The City began collecting Mobility Fees on January 1, 2020.
