The substantially discounted impact fees builders pay to help cover the costs of new and expanded roads will continue “indefinitely” if the Sarasota County Commission adopts a revised law about the fees.
the commission will consider a roads impact fee ordinance that establishes a new appeals procedure for those who think they are being unfairly charged. The Herald-Tribune reports they cut the fees in half in 2011 when the new home construction was in the dumps. That means for the time being, the fee for a 2 to 3 thousand square foot home would stay at $2,887.
