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, a Certificate of Adequate Public Facilities (COA) application for transportation concurrency is required. Upon concurrency approval, 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 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.
Impact Fee Change of Use Program for Existing Commercial Redevelopment:
Proposed developments which meet the criteria set forth below shall not be assessed additional impact fees related to changes of use within the existing buildings,
- Development is proposed within a lawfully existing building which has had a Certificate of Occupancy issued for at least 3 years. Impact fees for the existing building must have been paid the then applicable impact fees at time of construction; and
- Proposed development is solely within the existing building and does not include the addition of any new square footage.
- Demolition and reconstruction projects are not eligible for this program.
- For the purposes of water and wastewater impact fees, projects that require an existing meter to be upsized are not eligible for this program.
Please contact Brandi Pollard at (239) 252-6237 for determination as to whether the water meter will need to be upsized for a change of use on your building permit.
Am I required to pay impact fees for a guest house?
Yes, impact fees are assessed on any structure that the Building Department determines to be a guest house. A Residential Impact Fee Schedule is available on the Impact Fee web page under Impact Fee Schedules and Forms, or the Impact Fee Calculator on the web page will calculate the fees for you - choose Multi-Family Apts. and Guest House as the Building Use.
Am I required to pay impact fees for a residential detached garage or shed?
No, impact fees are not assessed on residential accessory structures. Accessory structures are detached and include shed, garages, etc.
Am I required to pay impact fees if I convert my garage to a room?
When a garage is converted to a room, even if for storage, it is considered new living area under impact fee definitions. There are two different tiers/rates for a single family home depending upon the living area: 1) Less 4,000 sq. ft. and 2) 4,000 sq. ft. or more. Impact fees are assessed when a garage conversion causes the new living area square footage of the home to fall under a higher tier. A Residential Impact Fee Schedule is available under Impact Fee Schedules and Forms, or the Impact Fee Calculator will calculate the fee for you (choose Single Family Additions/Replacements).
Am I required to pay impact fees if I enclose my lanai?
If the sliding glass doors are removed and/or air conditioning vents are added, the space is considered new living area for impact fee assessment. There are two different tiers/rates for a single family home depending upon the living area: 1) Less 4,000 sq. ft. 2) 4,000 sq. ft. or more. Impact fees are assessed when the new living area square footage for the lanai causes the total living area square footage of the home to fall under a higher tier. Please see the Residential Impact Fee Schedule on the impact fee schedule web page. The impact fee web page also has an Impact Fee Calculator that will calculate the fee for you (choose Single Family Additions/Replacements), or contact the impact fee office at 252-2991 for a determination.
Am I required to pay impact fees if there was a home previously on the property?
Impact fees will be charged for the difference between the amount of impact fees (at current rates) for the size of the previously existing home and the amount of the impact fees for the size of the new home. The impact fee web page has an Impact Fee Calculator that will calculate the fee for you, or you can use the Residential Impact Fee Schedule also on the impact fee web page under Impact Fee Schedules and Forms.
Once a home is torn down, how long do I have to rebuild in order to retain the impact fee credit for the original home?
There is no time limit to rebuild. Impact fee credit will be given for the previously existing home as long as acceptable documentation can be provided that shows the original home was legally permitted and that any impact fees due at that time (if any) were paid.
When are impact fees for a building permit required to be paid?
Impact fees for a building permit must be paid prior to issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy, except Fire Impact Fees, which are paid at issuance of the building permit.
