What are impact fees?  Impact fees are charges imposed upon new development as a condition of development approval to pay for a proportionate share of the cost of improvements to the City’s infrastructure necessary to serve new growth and development.

Who is required to pay the impact fees?  All new development and additional finished square feet added to existing structure in the City where a building permit is applied for.

Is the impact fee a one-time payment or is it recurring?  Impact fees are one-time payments used to construct system improvements needed to accommodate new development. 

How will the money from impact fees be used?  Impact fees are collected to provide public services to a new development, fund capital improvements required to serve growth, and to benefit new development by maintaining current levels of service.
