Take a lesson on street impact fees

Friday, April 15, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

Confused about the impact of street impact fees? You are not alone. Large- or small-scale developers may attend one of three city-sponsored webinars (via Zoom) intended to explain the new fee, which will be implemented on June 22. According to a press release from the city, the topics covered will include:

  • What is a SIF, and why is the city of Austin collecting the fee?
  • What other communities have a SIF program and are collecting fees?
  • Website information for small developers
  • How will the fee be used?
  • Who will have to pay the fee?
  • How is the fee calculated, and can I estimate the fee myself?
  • When and how will the fee be collected (in what stage of the permit process)?
  • What forms of payment will the city accept?

Information about the fees can be found on the city website. Registration information for the webinars, which will be held April 20 and May 19, can also be found online.
