WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- As one southern Franklin County township weighs whether to enact transportation impact fees, another is considering raising its from $2,714 to $3,147.
Washington Township currently uses a formula to essentially charge developers $2,714 for each extra vehicle their project generates in a designated geographical zone. The impact fee revenue has been used toward the creation of Washington Township Boulevard, a relief route being built north of Waynesboro.
The proposal to hike that fee $433 per "vehicle trip" will go before the township supervisors for consideration tonight, according to a memo presented last week.
Supervisors in Antrim Township, which surrounds the Borough of Greencastle, are considering adopting their own fees. Those would affect the second phase of the Grindstone Hill Road extension between Leitersburg Road and U.S. 11 at Interstate 81's exit 3.
