Impact fees are one time charges applied to new development, providing revenue for capacity producing capital improvements to accommodate the demand for those improvements generated by new development in order to maintain adopted levels of service. Thus, impact fees are charged for all development activities that create/increase demand for capital facilities, using a fair share “consumption-based” approach.
Overall, impact fees partially fund construction of major roadways, libraries, schools, parks, correctional facilities, fire/EMS facilities, law enforcement facilities, solid waste facilities, and public buildings. Other sources of revenue for such facilities include ad valorem property tax, gas tax, and optional local sales tax.
