Agenda Bill 2009-11-23B - Construction Excise Tax for LOSD
Agenda Bill ID:
AGENDA BILL 2009-11-23B
Lake Oswego School District requests West Linn City Council to approve their IGA to implement impact fees on new development commonly referred to as Construction Excise Taxes.
November 23, 2009
Land Use Case Number:
Staff report of October 16, 2009
Letter from Lake Oswego School District
Map of affected properties within West Linn city limits
Intergovernmental Agreement with LOSD
Policy Questions for Council Consideration:
Does the Council wish to enter into a similar IGA with the LOSD as it did with the WLWSD in October 2007?
The LOSD plans to start charging an impact fee on new development within their school boundaries as the WLWSD currently does. To accomplish this, the District needs the City to collect the fee on its behalf (and the City may retain an administrative fee of 4%). The affected area is minimal (see map attached) with only a few properties within West Linn city limits.
Staff recommends the Council approve the IGA and authorize the City Manager to sign on it on behalf of the City.
