Exactions, Impact Fees And Other Land Development Conditions

Web Abstract: 
Government imposes impact fees and exactions on the land development process in order to pay for public facilities needed to service a particular project. To the extent that the fee or exaction exceeds the land developer's proportionate share of the facility's cost, the levy is an unconstitutional taking of property. Courts scrutinize the calculations for imposing such fees and exactions by government, particularly if they are ad hoc. It is therefore useful, if not necessary, for government to regularize the land development condition process through appropriate local ordinances. [Author's abstract]
