BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That Chapter 39, Arterial Street Impact Fees, of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, is hereby amended by repealing sections 39-3, 39-4, 39-5, 39-6, 39-7, 39-8, 39-9, 39-10 and enacting in lieu thereof new sections of like numbers and subject matter, to read as follows:

 

Sec. 39-3. Applicability and exemptions.

 

(a) On or after the effective date of this Chapter 39, any person who shall construct either a new residential or nonresidential development in the area of the City of Kansas City located within one of the benefit districts as defined by Section 39-6, shall be obligated to pay an arterial street impact fee.

 

(1) Except as provided in sections 39-3(a)(3) and 39-3(a)(4), no building permit for a residential development shall be issued unless the applicant thereof has paid the applicable impact fee imposed by this Chapter 39 unless otherwise exempted under subsection (b) below. If the permit is for less than the entire development, the fee shall be computed separately for the amount of development covered by the building permit.

 

(2) No certificate of occupancy, including a temporary or full certificate of occupancy, for nonresidential development shall be issued unless the applicant thereof has paid the applicable impact fee imposed by this Chapter 39 unless otherwise exempted under subsection (b) below. If the certificate of occupancy is for less than the entire development, the fee shall be computed separately for the amount of development covered by the building permit from which the certificate of occupancy is requested.

 

(3) A conditional building permit may be issued pending the payment of the applicable impact fee where an application for individual assessment or credit has been filed according to section 39-5 or 39-8, as applicable.

 

(4) A conditional building permit may be issued where an appeal has been filed with the Board of Zoning Adjustment under section 39-9 and the applicant has provided the impact fee administrator with a letter of credit in the amount of the contested impact fee pending the decision of the Board of Zoning Adjustment.

 

(b) This Chapter 39 shall not be applicable to building permits or certificates of occupancy otherwise necessary for:

 

(1) Room additions, remodeling, rehabilitation or other improvements to an existing structure, provided that there is no increase in the number of dwelling units for residential use or in the applicable development units for nonresidential use, and there is no change of use that would generate more peak hour vehicle traffic than any previous use subject to the provisions of section 39-4 (c).

 

(2) Rebuilding or replacement of a damaged, destroyed, demolished or removed structure, whether voluntary or involuntary, provided there is no increase in the number of dwelling units for residential use or in the applicable development units for nonresidential use, and there is no change of use that would generate more peak hour vehicular traffic than the previous use, and that the rebuilding or replacement occurs no later than ten (10) years after the demolition or removal of the previous structure.

 

Sec. 39-4 Fee Schedule

 

(a) The City shall calculate the impact fee due by:

 

(1) Verifying the number and type of dwelling units or square footage of nonresidential structures or other applicable development unit that are proposed to be constructed as shown on the building permit application.

 

(2) Determining the impact fee that shall be applied for each dwelling unit or square footage of nonresidential structure or other applicable development unit pursuant to subsection (b) of this section. If the proposed use is listed in subsection (b) the city shall calculate the impact fee due by using the measurements/units listed in subsection (b) and not consult the Institute of Transportation Engineers Trip Generation Manual. In the event that the type of use proposed is not listed in the fee schedule, the fee for the most similar use, in terms of traffic generation, shall be used. The description of land use categories in the most current edition of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) Trip Generation manual shall be used as a guide in applying the land uses in the fee schedule for those land uses that are not specifically listed in subsection (b).

 

(3) Multiplying the number of dwelling units or square footage of nonresidential structures, stated in terms of 1,000 square feet of gross floor area, or other applicable development unit by the applicable impact fee.

 

(b) The following are the arterial street impact fees applicable to new residential and nonresidential development:

 

(1) The following fees shall be assessed in the North Service Area, which includes all of the incorporated area of the City of Kansas City, Missouri located north of the Missouri River that is included in one of the five benefit districts defined in Section 39-6:

(c) For redevelopment, reconstruction or expansion of an existing development, the fee shall be calculated by taking the difference between the total fees calculated for the proposed use and for any prior use of the site that was in operation, provided that the prior use was in operation within ten (10) years prior to the first building permit for the redevelopment. In the event that no use was in operation on the site within the last ten (10) years, the redevelopment shall be treated the same as a new development.

 

(d) For a proposed mixed-use development, the impact fee for each residential dwelling type and nonresidential structure shall be calculated separately and the fees added together to determine the appropriate impact fee for the development.

 

Sec. 39-5. Individual assessments.

 

(a) The impact fee shall be computed by the use of an individual assessment of traffic impact if:

 

(1) The type of new development being commenced is not similar, in terms of traffic generation, to any of the land use types listed on the fee schedule in Sec. 39-4;

 

(2) The fee payer chooses to have the amount of the fee determined by the use of an individual assessment; or

 

(3) The Impact Fee Administrator concludes that the nature, timing or location of the proposed new development makes it likely to generate impacts costing substantially more to mitigate than the amount of the fee that would be generated by the use of the fee schedule.

 

(b) The applicant shall be responsible for preparation of the individual assessment if the applicant chooses to conduct the analysis. The Impact Fee Administrator shall be responsible for preparation of the individual assessment if the type of land development being proposed is interpreted not to be one of those types listed in the fee schedule or analysis of the proposed new development concludes that the nature, timing or location of the proposed new development makes it likely to generate impacts costing substantially more than the amount of the fee generated by the use of the fee schedule. The person who prepares the individual assessment shall be a qualified professional in the preparation of transportation impact analysis and shall be approved by the Impact Fee Administrator on the basis of professional training and experience. If the Impact Fee Administrator is responsible for preparation of the assessment, the Administrator may request the applicant to prepare the individual assessment and credit the cost for such preparation against the impact fees.

 

(c) The individual assessment for the arterial street impact fee shall determine if the proposed new development is designed or located so that the new development will place less demand on the arterial system than that projected in the fee schedule. The individual assessment shall calculate the applicable impact fees according to the following formula:

 

 

ASSESSED FEE

 

=

 

PERCENT x MAXIMUM FEE

 

MAXIMUM FEE

 

=

 

PK HR VMT x NET COST/VMT

 

Where:

 

 

 

 

 

PERCENT

 

=

 

50% in North Service Area; 50% in South Service Area

 

PK HR VMT

 

=

 

PK HR TRIPS x % NEW x LENGTH 2

 

PK HR TRIPS

 

=

 

Trip ends during PM peak hour of adjacent street traffic

 

% NEW

 

=

 

Percent of trips that are primary, as opposed to pass by or diverted-link trips

 

LENGTH

 

=

 

Average length of a trip on the City arterial system

 

2

 

=

 

Avoids double-counting trips for origin and destination

(d) Review of application.

 

(1) An individual assessment shall be undertaken through the submittal of an application of individual assessment of arterial street impact fees. An applicant may submit such an application at the applicants discretion. The Impact Fee Administrator shall submit such an application for any proposed new development interpreted as not one of those types listed on the Fee Schedule and for any proposed new land development for which it concludes the nature, timing or location of the proposed new development makes it likely to generate impacts costing substantially more to mitigate than the amount of the fee that would be generated by the use of the Fee Schedule.

 

(2) Upon receipt of any application for individual assessment, the Impact Fee Administrator shall determine if the application is complete. If the Impact Fee Administrator determines that the application is not complete, a written statement shall be sent to the applicant by mail, specifying the deficiencies. The Impact Fee Administrator shall take no further action on the application until it is deemed complete.

 

(3) When the Impact Fee Administrator determines the application is complete, the application shall be reviewed and a written decision rendered in one month on whether the fee should be modified and, if so, what the amount should be.

 

(e) If the Impact Fee Administrator finds that the data, information and assumptions used by the applicant to calculate the individual assessment satisfies the requirements of this section, the fee determined in the individual assessment shall be deemed the fee due and owing for the proposed new development. This adjustment in the fee shall be set forth in a fee agreement.

 

(f) Any applicant may appeal the Impact Fee Administrators decision on the individual assessment, whether initiated by the applicant or by the Impact Fee Administrator, by filing a petition to the Board of Zoning Adjustment of Kansas City, Missouri, pursuant to Section 39-9. The applicant must file a notice of appeal with the Impact Fee Administrator within ten working days following the decision on the individual assessment.

 

Sec. 39-6. Accounting and expenditures.

Fees shall be deemed to be spent on the basis that the first fee collected shall be the first fee spent. The refund of the fees shall be undertaken through the following process:

 

(1) The feepayer or successor in interest, if the successor is entitled to receive the refund, must petition the city for the refund within one year following the seven-year period from the date on which the impact fee was paid. Within one month of the end of the seven-year period from the date on which the unspent impact fee was paid, the Impact Fee Administrator shall notify the fee payer of eligibility for a refund at the address provided by the fee payer at the time of fee payment or at a new address subsequently provided by the fee payer. It shall be the responsibility of the fee payer to keep the address current.

 

(2) The petition must contain the following information:

 

a. A notarized sworn statement that the petitioner paid the impact fees or is otherwise entitled to receive the refund of the impact fees paid; and

 

b. Proof of payment of the impact fee.

 

c. If the original feepayer is not requesting the refund, proof of the successors interest which entitles the successor to the refund must be submitted with the application for refund.

 

(3) Within one month from the date of receipt of a petition for refund, the Impact Fee Administrator shall review the petition and determine if it is complete. If the Impact Fee Administrator determines the petition is not complete, a written statement specifying the deficiencies shall be sent to the petitioner by certified mail. Unless the deficiencies are corrected, the Impact Fee Administrator shall take no further action on the petition. When the Impact Fee Administrator determines that the petition is complete, the petition shall be reviewed within one month. The Impact Fee Administrator shall approve the refund petition if it is determined that the feepayer or his successor in interest has paid a fee which the City has not spent within the period of time permitted under this section. The refund shall include the fee paid, plus interest.

 

(b) A refund of fees paid shall be made upon written request of the fee payer within one year, when the work for which the fee was paid has not been commenced; provided any building permits and any related plans review applications have been canceled. An administrative fee of ten (10) percent of the fee paid, not to exceed a maximum of $1,000.00, shall be retained by the City. Where fees have been paid or collected in error by the city staff or the request for refund is made within 30 days, the fee payer shall be refunded the entire fee paid.

 

Any petitioner may appeal the decision on the refund to the Board of Zoning Adjustment of Kansas City, Missouri, pursuant to Section 39-9. The applicant must file a notice of appeal with the Impact Fee Administrator within ten working days following the decision.


Sec. 39-8. Construction credits.

 

(a) Any person subject to an impact fee pursuant to this Chapter 39 may apply for a credit against any arterial street impact fee for any contribution, payment, bond submitted securing completion of improvements, or construction accepted and received by the City for any arterial street, including parkways and boulevards as defined herein, identified in the City's adopted Major Street Plan. Credit provided for in this section shall be in addition to those recurring revenue credits factored into the impact fee schedule. Credit shall only be provided for arterials that are or will be the responsibility of the City. No credit shall be provided for the following:

 

(1) Improvements to state roads or federal highways, with the exception of at-grade intersections of City-maintained arterials with state roads or federal highways (if the intersection improvement was a necessary part of the arterial street improvement), and with the exception of state highways and roads which are included within the definition of arterial street or arterial systems in section 39-2(d).

 

(2) Dedication of rights-of-way, since land costs were not included in calculating the arterial street impact fee.

 

(3) Improvements to City streets other than arterial streets, with the exception that improvements to the intersections of City arterials and City non-arterials shall be eligible if they expand the capacity of the arterial.

 

(4) Any improvement that is primarily related to serving an individual development project, such as acceleration-deceleration lanes, turn lanes or traffic signals that primarily serve traffic entering or exiting the development project.

 

(5) Improvements for which reimbursement or direct funding are being provided for under an approved tax increment financing plan. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any person may apply for a credit and a credit may be provided for arterial street improvements identified in the Citys adopted Major Street Plan if at the time of application for a credit under this Section 39-8, an election to waive payment or reimbursement under the tax increment financing plan is filed with the Tax Increment Financing Commission of Kansas City, Missouri, with a copy provided to the City.

 

(6) Improvements to arterial streets not located in one of the eight benefit districts established in this Chapter 39.

 

(b) Credits shall be calculated as follows:

 

(1)               No credit shall be provided under this section for contributions, payments or construction made more than twenty-five (25) years prior to the effective date of this Chapter 39, unless it can be shown by the applicant for such credit that the City has not undertaken any significant amount of reconstruction, resurfacing, installation or replacement of curb and gutter, or other renovation required to extend the life of the facility beyond normal and routine maintenance.

 

(2) Credits for contributions, payments or construction received and accepted by the City prior to May 1, 2002 shall be provided if the development for which the contribution, payment or construction was made has not been completed and/or the contributions, payments or construction received were listed as improvements in Table 14 of the Duncan Associates, Arterial Street Impact Fee Study dated October 2000 for which the impact fee schedules were established. The term completed shall mean that all structures which require a certificate of occupancy within the currently approved development plan on file with the City at the time of building permit issuance have received a temporary or permanent certificate of occupancy, or have been occupied, if occupation occurs first. For developments that include structures for which a certificate of occupancy is not required, the term completed with regard to those structures shall mean that the work has reached a state of construction sufficient to qualify the work for consideration by the director of city development as being substantially complete. The current owner of the property for which such contribution, payment or construction was made as a condition of development approval shall file an application for credit by May 1, 2003; however, any person who applied for credit on or before May 1, 2003 and was denied may request that his application be reconsidered until August 1, 2006 and his application will be reconsidered consistent with the above definition of completed. If the application is not made by May 1, 2003, no credit shall be provided. The application for credit shall be submitted and reviewed as provided in this section. The amount of the credit for a contribution, payment or construction made prior to May 1, 2002 shall be the current value of the contribution, payment or construction, less the total amount of arterial street impact fees that would have been owed for the building permits already issued for the project had those permits been subject to the maximum fees specified in Sec. 39-4(b). The value of any construction shall not include costs for improvements that are in excess of City standards, unless the City specifically required the higher standard construction. The current value shall be determined using the Engineering News-Record Construction Cost Index or an equivalent index if such index is discontinued.

 

(3) Any contribution, payment or construction received and accepted by the City on or after the effective date of this Chapter 39 shall be credited in an amount equal to 100 percent of the contribution or payment or the estimated cost of the construction for required arterial street improvement that expands the capacity of the City's arterial system. The estimated cost shall be based on the lowest responsive bid by a qualified bidder, which bid is approved by the Impact Fee Administrator; or, if no bid is available, the estimated cost certified by a licensed engineer and approved by the Impact Fee Administrator. In the event that the impact fee schedule is revised to account for cost inflation prior to the use of the credits, the credits shall be adjusted to current value to the time of the fee schedule update based on the Engineering News Record Construction Cost Index, or an equivalent index if such index is discontinued.

 

(4) An impact fee credit may be applied against arterial street impact fees that would otherwise be due for building permits issued anywhere within the benefit district of the development for which the arterial improvement or contribution was required as a condition of development approval. The City shall maintain an accounting of the amount of the credit held by an impact fee credit holder and shall reduce the amount of the credit as authorized by the impact fee credit holder. After the credit balance is exhausted, no additional credits shall be applied to subsequent building permits.

 

(5) Impact fee credits held by an impact fee credit holder may be transferred or sold to be used for another development within the same benefit district. No such credits may be transferred or sold by the impact fee credit holder until the Impact Fee Administrator has certified the amount of the credits held by the impact fee credit holder. Anyone attempting to use impact fee credits shall be responsible for proving ownership of the credits to the satisfaction of the Impact Fee Administrator. In the event that the impact fee schedule is revised to account for cost inflation prior to the use of the credits, the credits shall be adjusted to current value to the time of the fee schedule update based on the Engineering News-Record Construction Cost Index, or an equivalent index if such index is discontinued.

(c) The determination of any allowable credit shall be undertaken through the submittal of an application for credit agreement, which shall be submitted to the Impact Fee Administrator. The application for credit agreement shall include the following information:

 

(1) If the proposed application for credit agreement involves construction:

 

a. The proposed plan of the specific construction prepared and certified by a duly qualified and licensed engineer or contractor; and

 

b. The lowest responsive bid by a qualified bidder, or, if no bid is available, projected costs for the suggested capital improvement, which shall be based on local information for similar improvements, along with the construction timetable for the completion thereof. Such estimated costs shall include the cost of construction or reconstruction; the cost of plans and specifications; the costs of professional services; and all other expenses necessary or incident to such construction or reconstruction.

 

(2) If the proposed application for credit agreement involves a credit for any contribution or payment:


a. A copy of the document in which the contribution or payment was agreed;

 

b. If payment has been made, proof of payment; or

If it is determined that the application is not complete, the Impact Fee Administrator shall send a written statement by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the applicant at the address for the applicant set forth in the application, outlining the deficiencies. The Impact Fee Administrator shall not take further action on the proposed application until all deficiencies have been corrected or otherwise settled. Failure of the applicant to receive the written statement shall not constitute a failure by the City to send said written statement or a failure of notice.

 

(e) Once the Impact Fee Administrator determines that the proposed application is complete, the Impact Fee Administrator shall review it within one month. The Impact Fee Administrator shall determine the amount of credit due based on the information submitted, or, if it determines that such information is inaccurate or unreliable, then on alternative engineering or construction costs acceptable to the City. The value of the credits may be determined using maximum unit costs based on current low bid results received on other projects through the Citys public bidding process.

 

(f) If the application is approved by the Impact Fee Administrator, a credit agreement that specifically outlines the contribution, payment or construction, the time by which it was or shall be completed or paid and any extensions of time therefore and the dollar credit that the applicant shall receive for the contribution, payment or construction shall be prepared. The credit agreement shall not become effective until the City accepts the facilities or receives the contribution or payment or receives a bond securing completion of the improvements to the arterial street. Any credit may be transferred or sold within the same benefit district pursuant to Sec. 39-8(b)(5).

 

(g) After determination of the amount of the credit, an applicant may appeal such determination to the Board of Zoning Adjustment of Kansas City, Missouri, pursuant to Section 39-9. The applicant must file a notice of appeal with the Impact Fee Administrator within ten working days following the determination of the credit.

 

Sec. 39-9. Appeals.

 

(a) Appeals authorized under this Chapter 39 shall be heard by the Board of Zoning Adjustment of Kansas City, Missouri.

 

(b) The Board shall schedule a hearing on the appeal after the appeal is filed by the applicant with the Impact Fee Administrator. Written notice of the time and date of the hearing shall be provided to the applicant at least two weeks prior to the hearing. Three (3) out of five (5) votes of the Board are required to overturn the decision of the Impact Fee Administrator.

(d) A person can file an appeal of the Boards decision with the circuit court. An appeal filed under this section would be a Chapter 536, RSMo appeal pursuant to the Administrative Procedures Act.

 

Sec. 39-10. Periodic review.

 

(a) At least once every three years after the effective date of this Chapter 39, the Impact Fee Administrator shall recommend to the City Council whether any changes should be made to the arterial street impact fee schedule to reflect changes in the factors that affect the fee schedule. The purposes of this review are to analyze the effects of inflation on the actual costs of facilities and to ensure that the fees charged new residential and nonresidential development do not exceed the pro rata share of the reasonably anticipated costs of facilities necessitated by new development.

 

(b) Before any ordinance is adopted amending the schedule, the Mayor shall appoint an impact fee steering committee. The steering committee shall be composed of three representatives of the real estate, development, or building industries who are not employees or officials of a political subdivision or governmental entity, a representative from the Public Improvements Advisory Commission, a representative from each of the public works, city development, codes administration and parks and recreation departments, and a representative from the city managers office. An alternate member may be appointed to serve in the place of each of the members by the Mayor.

 

The steering committee shall review and make a recommendation on any proposed amendment to the fee schedule, and will make a recommendation on any other changes to this chapter which are submitted to the committee for review. A quorum of the committee shall be five members.
