The ability to fund implementation and enforcement is thus important for communities interested in adopting a TRL ordinance. ChangeLab Solutions designed this checklist to help jurisdictions think through all the costs associated with a TRL ordinance.

Unfortunately, we had to retire the tool due to compatibility issues with our new website. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. This checklist serves as a good starting point for calculating TRL fees for your jurisdiction. Be sure to check out all of our TRL resources.
