Development Exactions

The following discussions provide links to development exaction ordinances put into place by local governments providing mitigation for development impacts. These contributions can include right-of-way for transportation improvements, which can be incorporated into innovative financing packages.

Burlington, Washington

Chapter 15.13 of the Municipal Code of Burlington, Washington.pdf (53 KB) establishes Methods to Mitigate Development Impacts. It provides alternatives for land developers to mitigate impacts associated with their development in areas such as streets, alleys, public ways, open space drainage ways, water supplies, parks, and several other areas. The legislation establishes a legal mechanism for the dedication of land to a public body and provides a useful model for those interested in incorporating land exactions in the development of new surface transportation projects.
