As of March 1, 2018, Collier County Water-Sewer District has taken over responsibility for the former Florida Governmental Utility Authority (FGUA) utility area within Golden Gate City. Please be advised that any building permit for new construction on a property that has water and/or sewer services available will be required to connect and will be assessed the applicable impact fees. Please see our current fee schedules for rates.
IMPACT FEE ASSESSMENT INFORMATION:
BUILDING PERMITS: Impact fees assessed on a building permit are calculated using the rates in effect when the building permit is submitted, or at issuance of a certificate of occupancy, whichever is less. The fees are paid prior to issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy. Fire impact fees, which are collected on behalf of the independent fire districts, are due at permit issuance. Impact fees assessed on permits submitted to the City of Naples or the City of Marco Island are due at permit issuance.
SITE DEVELOPMENT PLANS OR PLATS: Prior to approval of a Site Development Plan or Residential Plat, 33% of the estimated road impact fees must be paid and a Certificate of Adequate Public Facilities (COA) for transportation concurrency issued. Upon concurrency approval and payment, a COA in perpetuity will be issued concurrently with approval of the Site Development Plan or Plat.
Final calculation of the impact fees is based upon the rates in effect when the building permit is submitted, or at issuance of a certificate of occupancy, whichever is less. The remaining road impact fees, and all other impact fees, are paid prior to issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy. All impact fees for a Golf Course or an RV Park must be paid prior to approval of a Site Plan.
