What are Utility Impact Fees?

A Utility Impact Fee is a charge imposed against new development in order to generate revenue for funding or recouping the costs of capital improvements or facility expansions necessitated by and attributable to the new development.

Utility impact fees help pay the cost of building or expanding facilities in order to provide the adequate service that a new development requires.
