The City assesses a one-time fee on new development to help fund a proportionate share of the cost of infrastructure needed to serve that development. Impact fees are also assessed when there is an expansion of the development or a change in use that requires a higher service need. These fees are dedicated strictly to roads, parks, police, and fire services and are collected by the Planning and Development Services Department when building permits are issued.
To comply with changes in State Law, modifications were made to the impact fees based on numerous public hearings, the Land Use Assumptions report, and various Infrastructure Improvements Plans reports. The revised reports were subsequently adopted by the Mayor and Council on August 5, 2014, Ordinance 11203 was adopted on October 9, 2014, and the new fees became effective December 23, 2014.
