Current Issues in Development Impact Fees

Gain tips on how to distinguish between fees that have been upheld and those which have been found deficient in one way or another.

The establishment and imposition of reasonable, legally-valid, development impact fees and similar exactions as conditions of development approval remains one of the most contentious and fiscally-significant subjects of concern for public policy-makers, planners, governmental agencies and private developers and property owners (as well as for prospective home buyers and tenants). In light of increasing budgetary constraints (exacerbated by the recent pandemic) many state and local agencies increasingly turn to fees as a critical source of funding for needed public infrastructure and facilities. At the same time, however, there is widespread recognition that such fees and exactions are a major factor adversely impacting the affordability of housing. Legislatures and courts have imposed new constraints on the use of development fees. This topic will provide insights as to how to try to navigate these turbulent waters, including practical suggestions and guidance based on recent court decisions, distinguishing between fees that have been upheld and those which have been found deficient in one way or another.
