Development Impact Fees. A Primer.

Web Abstract: 
The use of development impact fees to finance public facilities that are necessary to service new growth is a practice that has gained importance and acceptance in the last decade. In the U.S. the practice and widespread use of the DIF are asymmetric. Even though DIF are widely accepted, many public officials, developers, and the general public do not yet understand the need for DIF and their effect on the economy. There are important policy and legal issues involved. Selected state experiences are reviewed here. [Authors' abstract]
