RESOLUTION NO. RS2001-843
A resolution requesting the Metropolitan Board of Public Education and the Metropolitan Planning Commission to advise the Metro Council on the feasibility and appropriateness of imposing impact fees on new development to support funding for public education.
WHEREAS, increased development, especially by residential dwellings, requires an increase in public schools, classrooms and buildings; and
