Keeping pace with rapid growth

Growth must pay its way under Idaho law -- but only if there are enough local tax dollars to meet the required match. Increased registration fees will ensure development covers its full share.

Fighting traffic with new technology

The latest tech creates smoother drives to work, to school and to everywhere else you need to go. More fee money means more congestion relief and more "smart signal" improvements.

More resources needed to keep pace with record-setting growth

Voters will see a ballot measure this fall to increase the registration fees paid by most vehicle owners by $18 annually -- about a nickel a day. If approved, the Ada County Highway District will use the estimated $7.5 million in new revenue to:

  • Add more 'smart signal' technology and build more turn lanes at intersections to improve the flow of traffic;
  • Start more mobility projects -- intersection rebuilds, road section improvements -- the big jobs that provide safer and smoother travel for all users;
  • Ensure that development pays its way by providing the legally required, tax dollar match to collect 100 percent of available impact fees;
  • Build new sidewalks, bike lanes and Safe Routes to School, increasing mobility and safety for everybody.
