System Development Fees

System development fees effective Jan. 1, 2024, to Dec. 31, 2024

Water, water resources and wastewater system development fees are assessed at the time of permitting. The fees are applied to the right to access existing system capacity and / or for payment of a proportionate share of the capital cost to add capacity to meet the new potential demand. Also paid at the time of permitting, stormwater development impact fees are a proportionate share of the cost to add stormwater capital facilities to manage the runoff created by the impervious surfaces of new construction in the Plum Creek or Cherry Creek Basin. These fees are more fully described pursuant to Municipal Code 13.12.
