UFSA plans to update impact fee rates on February 15, 2021, based on the draft Fire Impact Fee Analysis. The documents related to this change are below:
Single Family Residential
$433.04 per unit
Single Family Residential Units have been categorized as only those single-family housing structures which are entirely detached. One structure is equal to one unit, regardless of the size. The Single-Family fee per unit is the final fee for each single-family detached structure.
$318.81 per unit
Multiple Family Residential Units are defined as any other residential structure other than single family detached housing. This includes attached condos and any other separately sold units which are physically attached to other units (duplexes, townhomes, etc.) One dwelling is equal to one unit. The fee for a two-unit, ten-unit, or one hundred-unit multi-family structure (or any number of units) is to be calculated the same way. The number of units is multiplied by the Multi-Family fee per unit to arrive at the final fee.
$936.15 per 1,000 square feet
($817.18 for occupancy and $118.97 for apparatus)
The Commercial category includes all building square footage associated with private commercial/ institutional activity. This includes all typical retail businesses, as well as churches, medical facilities, assisted living facilities, and other private institutions. The final fee is based on the total square footage of the structure. Each 1,000 ft2 increment of building space is equal to one unit.
$139.73 per 1,000 square feet
($121.97 for occupancy and $17.76 for apparatus)
The Industrial category includes all building square footage associated with private industrial activity. This includes but is not limited to factories, manufacturing plants, and other private industrial activities. The final fee is based on the total square footage of the structure. Each 1,000 ft2 increment of building space is equal to one unit.
Currently, impact fees may be paid by check only. We are working on an online payment option and hope to be able to process online payments in early 2021.
