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?
