The Transportation Uniform Mitigation Fee (TUMF) is an obligation that must be met on all new development in Western Riverside County. For some developments, the developer is exempt from paying TUMF, but where the local agency has determined that TUMF is due, a developer will need to pay their TUMF fees. These fees vary based on the land use type of the proposed development and its size. These factors influence how traffic will be increased due to development. The TUMF fee goes toward providing improvements to improve local traffic.
If you are required to pay TUMF, you should begin by filling out an application for TUMF. Payments are made directly to Western Riverside Council of Governments. If your development is in the City of Beaumont, Lake Elsinore, Perris, or Unincorporated County those local agencies will collect payment.

Once the application is processed by your local agency, you will be able to pay by the following methods:
- Pay via wire transfer or ACH
- Pay via credit card through our online portal
- Pay by e-check through hour online portal
- Mailing a check via the U.S. Postal Service Priority or Overnight option - envelopes are delivered directly to our secured mailbox. Do not request a signature.
- If delivering a check to WRCOG offices, please allow additional time for staff to process payments which are delivered to our office and issue receipts.
WRCOG developed and administers the Transportation Uniform Mitigation Fee (TUMF), a program that ensures that new development pays its fair share for the increased traffic that it creates. The TUMF will raise over $3 billion for transportation projects in Western Riverside County.
