Background Discussion

• In April and May 2017, 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 [completed];
2) allow the expenditure of "old money" within cities [completed]; 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.
• On September 18, 2017, the Board authorized staff to set public hearings on these Land Development Code changes.

• This item is limited to number 3 above - capping fees at 90% of the maximum. This change requires an amendment to language in Chapter 11 of the Land Development Code.
