Transportation Utility Fees Debated In Minnesota

If passed, Minnesota cities would be allowed to impose property fees based on estimated traffic generation.

Commercial and multifamily property managers and some of their tenants are bristling over the possibility that Minnesota cities soon might be allowed to impose a fee on landowners based on the amount of traffic their property generates. It's hard to determine how much property owners would pay, but one report provided to the Legislature by proponents put the fee at about $3 to $5 a month for single-family homes and $50 to $100 for a high-density commercial property such as a supermarket.
