Development Impact Fees

On October 16, 2019, City Council adopted Ordinance 4878 (PDF) to amend Section 21.06 and add Chapter 21.11 of the Grand Junction Zoning and Development Code concerning the updating of and adoption of new Development Impact Fees. 

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 that development should pay its proportionate share of the capital costs of fire, police, parks and recreation and transportation infrastructure.

The adopted fee schedule for transportation, parks and recreation, police, and fire can be reviewed in the Impact Fee Implementation Schedule (PDF).

For single-family dwelling units, townhomes, and condominiums, impact fees are calculated and due in full at the time of Planning Clearance.

For multi-family dwelling units and non-residential projects, impact fees will be established at the time the complete application is submitted and will be valid so long as a planning clearance is issued within two years from the date of a complete application. Impact fees are due in full at the time of Planning Clearance.

The City currently offers incentives for certain development within a Redevelopment Area Boundary and a Corridor Infill Boundary. For additional information on City incentives, please visit the City’s Economic Development webpage.
