Revised Impact/Mobility Fees - Effective January 1, 2020

Overview

The purpose of impact fees is to ensure that new development bears a proportionate share of the cost of capital expenditures necessary to provide fire rescue, police, parks and recreation, roadway and mobility services, and public facilities in the City of Palm Beach Gardens.

On September 19, 2019, the City Council approved Ordinance 19, 2019 which revised the city's impact fees to include a new fee for mobility to replace road impact fees for certain lands in the City. Please click here for more information on the mobility study.

Section 78-95 of the City's Land Development Regulations requires a periodic review of the schedule of impact fees to update costs, credits, and generation rates. Per Section 163.31801, Florida Statutes, the calculations used for the 2017 update were the most recent data localized to Palm Beach Gardens. Please see the Tindale Oliver Impact Fee Study for information on fire rescue, police, parks and recreation, and public facilities fees. 

Should you have any questions regarding the changes to the impact fees, please contact the Building Department at (561) 799-4210.
