City of The Dalles Keeping Transportation SDC Credits
Will review again in 2013.
There will be no change to Transportation Systems Development Charge credits in the City of The Dalles for at least another year. Councilors in 2010 adopted an ordinance to provide additional credits towards Transportation SDC's in an effort to encourage economic development within the City. The Council has evaluated the plan annually since then, and City Manager Nolan Young says they will do so again in 2013. Between the end of August in 2011 and the end of the same month this year, The Dalles Community Development Department received 26 non-residential building permit applications totaling over 23 million dollars in value, of which nine were assessed Transportation SDC's and eight qualified for additional credits.
