Impact Fees

impact fees


Impact fees are one-time fees that are paid to the City by developers who construct new housing, commercial/retail, office or industrial buildings in Salt Lake. Impact fees are used to help cover growth-driven costs of providing public services to residents, including Fire and Police department services, and maintaining parks and roads

Moratorium Update:

At their November 1, 2016 meeting, the Council adopted an impact fee moratorium extension. The moratorium will stay in effect until new fee prices go into effect (90 days after the Council adopts an Impact Fees Facilities Plan in the coming weeks.) . The Mayor has recommended an Impact Fees Facilities Plan (IFFP), which proposes that some impact fees be decreased and some be increased.

Next Steps: Public Hearing

The Council will hold Public Hearings on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. and December 6, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. to accept public comment and consider the Mayor’s draft Impact Fees Facilities Plan (IFFP). The draft plan identifies new impact fee pricing, identifies the level of services (fire, parks, police, and transportation) that residents can expect, and more. Interested groups, including people in the development community, will have a chance to review the plan and provide input before a final plan is adopted by the Council.
