Transportation Uniform Mitigation Fee Program for the Coachella Valley
The Transportation Uniform Mitigation Fee (TUMF) is a component of Riverside County’s Measure A program to provide funding for transportation projects throughout the region. CVAG administers the TUMF program for the Coachella Valley, and applies fee revenues towards priority projects in the regional arterial system as determined by the Transportation Project Prioritization Study and Nexus Report. The TUMF, like all impact fees, is authorized through California’s Mitigation Fee Act, government code §66000-66025.
