Assistant City Manager Victoria Runkle says that the City will postpone a work session scheduled for October 28th regarding updated impact fees to allow for more discussion. Concerns have risen in particular regarding the transportation, fire and the water and sewer fees. While some of the new methodology would increase the individual fees, staff says the overall cost to build a new single-family home would increase only slightly.
Another meeting has been scheduled with stakeholders on October 28 and the City Council will hold a work session on November 25. At this point staff still anticipates the new methodology and fees will be adopted and become law on March 1, 2015.
