Water and Wastewater Development Fees
The City’s water and wastewater development fees are one-time payments to fund construction of public facilities needed to accommodate new development pursuant to ARS §9-463.05. The legislation requires that the development fees must (1) result in a beneficial use to the new development; (2) the development fee must be based on the newly adopted infrastructure improvements plan; (3) the development fee must not exceed the proportionate share of the cost of providing the water and wastewater services based on a common “service unit”; and (4) the costs of development fees for water and wastewater services provided to new development must be based on the same level of service provided to existing development.
The legislation also requires that before adopting amended development fees, the City must prepare an updated Land Use Assumptions report (LUA) and an Infrastructure Improvements Plan (IIP). These documents are also posted on the City’s website.
For most properties, development fees are generally due when a building permit is issued. However; refer to Scottsdale Revised Code Section 49-82, paragraphs 2 through 5, to determine development impact fee payment requirements.
On February 25, 2014, City Council adopted the new development impact fee schedule which is effective July 1, 2014.
