Private Funding for Roads

Front Cover
American Planning Association, Planning Advisory Service, 1990 - Architecture - 28 pages
The dearth of public funds for new highways has forced local governments to pursue private funding for road construction. This report defines and discusses four popular financing mechanisms: development agreements, traffic impact fees, special assessment districts, and private-sector initatives such as toll roads. For each financing method, it addresses issues of legality, implementation, and administration and looks at possible pros and cons. Includes appendices that outline sample acts and ordinances for impact fees and development agreements.
