Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are Impact Fees?

    Impact fees are charges levied against new construction, changes in land use, or an increase in service units to help generate revenue to build new infrastructure needed because of development. Fees for changes in land use  or increase in service units are based upon the net increase in the impact fee compared to the previous land use or service units. The fee is calculated based on a pre-set formula and paid at the time of, or prior to, the issuance of the building permit. The money is spent within the district that it was collected to build new regional parks, local parks, fire facilities and apparatus, and police facilities.

  • What does "exemption" mean?

    Exemptions refer to development activities that are not subject to impact fees.
