Council disagrees about when to start year of public hearings, meetings

Members of the Queen Creek Town Council agree there needs to be an increase in the town’s transportation impact fee rates.
However, they disagree about a proposed calendar in which the rate increase draft study document will be released for the public to view before a series of public hearings and other stakeholder input begin.
At the March 15 council meeting, Councilwoman Emilena Turley asked that the town not “pull the trigger” on the rate-increase statutory process. Instead she asked that it be postponed for 60 to 90 days to give the businesses more time to review the proposal before the start of public input.
“The business community is anxious (about the rate increase),” she said during the discussion of the matter.
