Trip Factor Index

The calculation of the base trip rate for nonresidential property is determined by identifying the appropriate land use category on the Trip Factor Index for the property, multiplying the trip factor for that land use category by the unit of measure for that land use category, and dividing by two.

The land use categories, trip factors, and units of measure listed on the Trip Factor Index are based on the Institute of Transportation Engineers Trip Generation Manual, 9th Edition, as modified by the City, and are the number of trips anticipated to and from a benefitted property per its land use and established units, as amended for local conditions.

The Trip Factor Index shall be created by separate resolution of the City Council, and may be amended or modified as determined by the City Council with or without recommendation of the Street Maintenance Advisory and Appeals Board. The current Trip Factor Index shall be kept on file with the city secretary.
