San Jose creates Diridon area 'impact fee zone' to pay for new infrastructure around planned Google megacampus

San Jose lawmakers have created a zone next to Diridon Station in which the city will charge an impact fee on top of building permits there to pay for an estimated $74 million in infrastructure expenses the city expects to incur. The new fee is likely to be the first of many new levies the council will be asked to charge as Google and other developers work on big projects in the area.
