Urban transportation service districts. Provides for the creation of urban transportation service districts and provides a mechanism whereby counties that resume responsibility for maintaining all or portions of the state secondary highway system within their boundaries before July 1, 2010, will receive an amount equal to the urban allocation per lane mile for the area within the district for purposes of road maintenance. In addition, such locality shall receive an amount equal to the difference between the urban allocation and what VDOT would be spending within the service district if not for the creation of such district. Furthermore, localities that have established urban transportation service districts may provide for the denial or modification of an application for rezoning when the existing and future transportation network that will serve the proposed development is inadequate to handle the anticipated transportation impact of the proposed development. Such localities shall also be granted expanded impact fee authority. Read the Bill »
