Public meeting to discuss road impact fee for oil and gas operators

Post Date:05/16/2019 1:54 PM
The city is hosting a public meeting on Thursday, May 23 to discuss a proposed road impact fee for oil and gas operators. This potential fee would apply to new oil and gas development in the city and would be used to help pay for future roadway improvements related to the impacts of truck traffic and other activity associated with these sites. The meeting allows residents to provide feedback on the methods being proposed to calculate and create the new fee.

Public Meeting: Oil and Gas Road Impact Fee
Thursday, May 23
6 p.m.
Bison Ridge Recreation Center
13905 E. 112th Avenue

To determine how the fee would be implemented, the city has hired an engineering firm to conduct a traffic impact fee study. This analysis considers factors such as the type of truck traffic generated by oil and gas well pads, how this traffic will affect roadways in the city and the projected cost of street maintenance resulting from that additional traffic. After considering public feedback from the meeting and finalizing the study, the consultant will present a recommended fee structure to city council for implementation.

This event is specifically for collecting feedback on the proposed oil and gas road impact fee. Future opportunities for additional public comment on oil and gas operations in the city will be available before the approval of any new activity in the city.
