This article discusses the consequences that the United States Supreme Court decision in Dolan v. City of Tigard has had on the ability of local land use regulators to impose development impact fees. The author notes that Dolan allows local land use regulators to utilize a "rough proportionality" test for determining the amount of development impact fees that may be assessed, and the author provides cogent examples of calculating and documenting such fees in the city of Elgin, Illinois.
