The City Council adopted "category exemption" status from impact fees for developments with agreements to fund or construct eligible impact fee improvements. These written agreements or approvals must have been completed prior to June 1, 2002. The development was granted exemption from the specific impact fee category in which it contributed improvements.
To have been eligible, the development would have contributed facilities such as:
- 16 inch or larger water mains, water pump stations or reservoirs
- 10 inch or larger trunk wastewater mains
- through lanes in the arterial streets
- dedicated land for public neighborhood parks.
Any site-related improvements were not eligible for the exemption of impact fees. Examples of ineligible improvements are construction of adjacent 12 inch water mains, collector or local road improvements, dedication of utility easements and dedication of trail easements.
