  9. 9. Proposed Updates to Existing Guidelines In addition to the creation of new guidelines, updates are also proposed to existing road fund guidelines for the Fairfax Center Area, Tysons-wide Transportation Fund, Tysons Grid of Streets Transportation Fund, and the Reston Road Fund. Proposed updates are intended to do the following: Ensure that fund policies comply with current proffer legislation. Provide clarifications that reflect the actual intent and historical administration of each fund. Provide clarifications to creditable improvement language to provide better information to applicants. Keep the timing of contributions and the types of expenses that may be creditable the same. There are no major changes to the timing and amount of contributions (other than inflationary increases). Correct typographical errors. 9
  10. 10. Proposed Updates to Existing Guidelines • Inclusion of guideline adoption date and most recent amendment date in titles, if available. • Renaming the Tysons-wide Transportation Fund and Tysons Grid of Streets Transportation Fund to be known as road funds, to be consistent with other road fund names. • Use of term the Land Use Action(s) to describe rezoning, special exception, and special permit actions. • Use of the term Creditable Improvements to describe in-kind, off-site, improvements that qualify for Road Fund credits or refunds. 10 Land Use Actions RZ PCA SE SP
  11. 11. Proposed Updates to Existing Guidelines • Clarification that upon approval of a Land Use Action, the contribution rate at the time of approval will remain effective for a period of two years.  The contribution amount for each development is determined by the effective rate at the time of the land use action (rezoning, special exception, special permit) approval by the board.  Upon approval, the contribution rate at the time of approval will remain effective for a period of 2 years.  If a site plan or subdivision plan (i.e. preliminary or final plat) is not submitted within two years from the development approval date, the contribution rate, which is in effect at the time of site plan submission or final subdivision plat submission, will be utilized to identify the total contribution required.  This follows a road funds policy that has been set in the Fairfax Center Area since 1982 and applies to all road funds. 11
