Administrative History

Boards and commissions are an established feature of Austin's municipal government. State, federal, and charter provisions establish several of the city's boards and commissions, but most result from the passage of ordinances. Boards and commissions address a multitude of topics, including planning, zoning, transportation, parks, libraries, and the airport. The influence and value of boards and commissions is significant because, by offering citizens an opportunity to participate in the city's governmental process, they lend a more diverse viewpoint for the city council to consider. A full list of the current City of Austin boards and commissions is available on the City of Austin website.

The Austin City Council approved the Impact Fee Advisory Board (name changed to Impact Fee Advisory Committee) in August of 1988 but did not start to approve members until November of 1988 (5 of the nine members appointed). The purpose of the Committee, as set forth in Chapter 395 of the Local Government Code, includes advising and assisting the City in adopting, reviewing and revising land use assumptions; reviewing the Impact Fee Capital Improvements Plan regarding water and wastewater capital improvements and file written comments thereon; monitoring and evaluating implementation of the capital improvements program; advising the land use assumptions, capital improvements program and capital recovery fees; and filing a semiannual report evaluating the progress of the City in achieving the capital improvements plans and identifying any problems in implementing the plans or administering the capital recovery fees.

Scope and Contents

The collection contains work plans and annual reports dated 2001 to 2006 that were filed with the City of Austin Office of the City Clerk as required by Austin City Code 2-1-46. These materials document the significant projects accomplished by the Committee as well as set goals for the future. Also included are copies of the semi-annual reported required under Chapter 395 of the Texas Local Government Code (Impact Fee Legislation S.B. 336) which provides an accounting of capital recovery fee collections.
