The TIM Fee Program’s “Land Use Types” are primarily based on the input land uses for the County’s General Plan Transportation Demand Model (TDM). These descriptions were further refined based on descriptions of similar land uses in the reference manual: “Trip Generation”, published by the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE). References listed below are to this manual. These descriptions do not include all possible uses. Single Family Dwellings (SFD): Single family detached homes on individual lots, including mobile/modular homes on a permanent foundation and homes within a retirement community. (Reference: Land Uses 210, 240, 251) Multi-family Dwellings (MFD): Two or more attached dwelling units with a common wall (irrespective of whether they are on the same or different lots/parcels). Examples include: apartments, condominiums, and townhouses. Each unit in a MFD pays the Multi-family rate.
