Impact Fee Rate Increase Effective June 26, 2019
CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (March 27, 2019) – At the March 26, 2019 meeting of the Charlotte County Board of County Commissioners, the Board acted to update the impact fee schedule. The rate increase is based upon studies completed to assess the cost upon county infrastructure by new development.
Recognizing the importance of balancing the need to adequately fund infrastructure with the need to keep Charlotte County competitive in terms of fees paid by potential residents, developers and investors, the Board voted to increase the rate by 5 percent, to 48.67 percent of those recommended by the technical studies. The new rate will become effective on June 26, 2019 and will apply to permit applications made on or after that date.
