Hillsborough Commission Majority Poised To Raise Impact Fees

By Jay Wittner May 18, 2020

It appears that the Hillsborough Commission will vote on Wednesday to double impact fees on residential construction.  The recently passed education impact fees plus the proposed new fees will push total costs per single family home from $13,000 to $28,000.  While infrastructure improvements are clearly needed, the timing is ill advised given the impact the Coronavirus is having on our economy.  The transportation portion of impact fees would increase by 80% and the parks component would increase by 750%. #CRE
