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.

In 2016, the Mayor recommended a new Impact Fees Facilities Plan (IFFP), which proposed that some impact fees be decreased and some be increased. After holding multiple public hearings and briefings, the Council adopted the Mayor’s proposed IFFP. The new fee prices went into effect on April 24, 2017.

For questions related to current fees, visit Building Services’ webpage or call 801-535-7752.
