System Development Charges

System Development Charges (SDCs)are a reimbursement fee, an improvement fee, or a combination thereof assessed or collected at the time of increased usage of a capital improvement or issuance of a development permit, building permit, or connection to the capital improvement.

The purpose of System Development Charges is to impose a portion of the cost of capital improvements for water, wastewater, storm drainage, transportation, and parks on developments and redevelopments that create the need for or increase the demands on capital improvements.
