Impact Fees at a Glance

Impact fees are charges assessed on new development to help pay for public infrastructure required to accommodate the new development. Impact fees are generally charged at the issuance of a project’s building permit. For certain types of land uses, the impact fee ordinances allow payment to occur prior to the authorization of pre-power or issuance of a project’s certificate of occupancy. The total impact fee for a project is the sum of the School, Law Enforcement, Fire, Parks and Transportation impact fees, as well as the water and sewer capital charges. You may obtain additional information on water and sewer capital charges by contacting the Orange County Utilities Department at 407-836-5503 or by email at Utilities.Information@ocfl.net. The Impact Fee Administration of the Development Services Section coordinates impact fee assessments following building permit review. To estimate impact fees for a project, please contact the Impact Fee Administration at 407-836-5691, via email at ImpactFees@ocfl.net or to download the fee rate schedule, please logon to www.ocfl.net/impactfees
