Report says Scottsdale’s development impact fees are appropriate

An outside agency concluded the city is appropriately planning future water and wastewater infrastructure and equitably using development impact fees to help pay for it. A comprehensive review of Scottsdale’s land use assumptions, infrastructure improvement plans and development impact fees for the water and wastewater systems was recently completed. The review found no issues. The city charges development impact fees to pay for water and wastewater infrastructure and facilities needed to accommodate new development. These fees are “one-time” payments that represent a proportionate share of the cost of infrastructure improvements needed. The biennial certified audit is required by state law, as is a public hearing on its results. That hearing is on the Tuesday, April 2, Scottsdale City Council agenda. The meeting begins at 5 p.m. in the City Hall Kiva, 3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd.
