Impact Fee Implementation
On October 16, 2019, City Council adopted Ordinance No. 4878 to amend section 21.06 and add Chapter 21.11 of the Grand Junction Zoning & Development Code concerning the updating of and adoption of new Development Impact Fees. The Council found that Fees are a necessary component of funding the capital costs of infrastructure required to maintain the current level of service for city residents, and further found that development should pay its proportionate share of the capital costs of fire, police, parks and recreation and transportation infrastructure.
See the Development Impact Fees page for more information and an implementation schedule.
