ACHD Releases Annual Revenue and Spending Report for 2016

Garden City - The seventh annual ACHD revenue and expense report, released today, details more than $1 billion in spending on transportation within each city and Ada County since 2002.

The report illustrates generally even distribution of services and projects received by each city in 2016 and over the 15-year span covered by the report. For example, Boise residents received some $46 million in projects, maintenance and other services last year, while the city as a whole contributed nearly $42 million in property taxes, gas taxes, development impact fees and other revenue to the Ada County Highway District.

Although ACHD is a countywide entity, sending resources toward the greatest needs on the regional roadway system, the spending report provides a reference point for local officials.
High-growth areas can be seen by the amount of impact fees generated in each jurisdiction. Development impact fees are paid through building permits as new homes, stores, and industrial buildings are completed. Meridian produced the most impact fees from 2002 through 2016, generating nearly $62 million - an indication of the fast-paced growth over a decade and a half.
