Contact and/or Presenter Information
Dwayne Guthrie, PhD, AICP
Impact Fee Manager

Action Requested
Planning Commission recommends that the Board of County Commissioners adopt Resolution 17-107 Impact Fee Administrative Procedures Manual (dated 9/20/17).

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Impact Fee Act, Land Development Code Chapter 11 - Impact Fees and Chapter 2 - Definitions related to impact fees

Background Discussion
In April and May, the Board of County Commissioners held work sessions on impact fees. The Board provided general direction to: 
1) bring forward housekeeping updates to the Land Development Code based upon the Clerk's audit, clarify policies and move administrative details to the proposed Impact Fee Procedures Manual; 
2) allow the expenditure of "old money" within cities; and 
3) bring forward item to allow consideration of County impact fees to continue at 90% of the schedule in the 2015 Impact Fee study instead of increasing to 100% in April 2018, amending the Land Development Code.

This item considers the Resolution 17-107, the Impact Fee Procedures Manual. Staff recommends moving administrative details regarding Independent Impact Analysis and Credits from the Land Development Code to the Impact Fee Procedures Manual.  The Procedures Manual clarifies interpretations of the LDC and specifies information for approval of credits.  The Procedures Manual describes the responsibilities of the County Impact Fee Administrator, including an annual review and report on fee collections, expenditures, fund balances, administrative changes and possible study updates.  Also, the Financial Management Department will conduct quarterly internal audit of impact fee assessments.
