Development impact fees are collected at the time a building permit is issued and used to construct system improvements needed to accommodate new development. A development impact fee represents future development’s proportionate share of capital facility needs. In certain cases, a change in use, expansion, redevelopment, modification may require impact fees to be paid based on the net increase for the new use as compared to the previous use.
- For residential development, fees are assessed per dwelling unit, based on the type of unit.
- Nonresidential development impact fees are assessed per square feet of floor area, based on the type of development. The nonresidential development fee schedule is designed to provide a reasonable determination for broad nonresidential development types: industrial, warehousing, commercial, and office/institutional.
- For unique development types, the City may allow or require an independent fee determinations.
