After conducting a comprehensive study, the Town Council adopted an impact fee ordinance effective February 1, 2020. Impact fees represent financial payments made from a developer to the local government to offset the costs of specific off-site capital improvements needed to facilitate future growth. Fees are to be collected for public facilities and services, including but not limited to transportation projects, parks, and municipal facilities.
Development impact fees shall be charged for new development or redevelopment. The fees to be collected will be determined before the issuance of a building permit. No building permit shall be issued for any development that requires impact fees until the fees have been remitted in full. Credits for the transportation portion may only be given to offset the new Impact fees owed on a case-specific basis, according to the Impact Fee Ordinance. Detailed information can be found in the links below to the ordinance and fee schedule or by contacting staff at 803-356-5938 or via email.
