BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

Traffic impact analysis (TIA) studies are intended to determine the need for any improvements to the adjacent and nearby transportation system in order to maintain a satisfactory level of service, an acceptable level of safety, and the appropriate access provisions for a proposed development. Section 118-46 (y) of the City of New Braunfels Code of Ordinances lists the requirements for a TIA in the city limits or ETJ.

 

The current process for submitting a TIA to the city begins with the applicant submitting a completed a TIA Determination Form and Proposed Site Exhibit to the city. Engineering staff reviews the materials submitted, determines the TIA requirements (TIA Worksheet or TIA Report), and returns a determination letter to the applicant.

 

If only a TIA Worksheet is required, the TIA process is finalized, and the applicant can submit their TIA Worksheet with the next step required by their proposed development.

 

If a TIA Report is required, a TIA scoping meeting is held between the applicant and Engineering staff. TxDOT, other City staff, or county staff are included on a case-by-case basis, depending on the proposed development. During this TIA scoping meeting, the parameters to be included in the report are discussed and agreed upon. After the TIA scoping meeting, the TIA process is finalized, and the applicant can submit their TIA Report and TIA Worksheet with the next step required by their proposed development.
