New residential, commercial or industrial development can significantly increase traffic on roadways, water consumption and wastewater volumes. Impact fees are a one-time charge assessed to new development and redevelopment, calculated in accordance with the methodology outlined in Chapter 395 of the Texas Local Government Code. The fees are based on land use assumptions, expected population growth and corresponding capital improvements and expenditures necessary to support that growth.
Impact fee updates are conducted as required by city ordinances and state law.
Fort Worth assesses impact fees for transportation, water and wastewater.
