As Local Governments Struggle To Finance Costs Associated With New Construction, More And More Turn To The Option Of Requiring Developers To Pay Impact Fees.

Web Abstract: 
An increasing number of municipalities across the nation are adopting local ordinances which impose impact fees on developers in order to finance costs associated with new construction. This article defines impact fees, as well as discusses alternatives to imposing impact fees. The author then discusses an Ohio case which provides a comprehensive analysis of the attacks usually launched against impact fee laws. For those states or municipalities considering developing their own impact fee system without specific state authority, the statute implemented by Texas is examined in detail as a working model.
