City of Milton Increases Parks and Recreation Impact Fee from $3100 to $6200 Per Residential Unit

On Monday, May 2nd, Milton City Council voted to increase their Parks and Recreation Impact Fee from $3,100 to the maximum allowed by law, $6,200, based on the $200 Million in Parks and Recreation Improvements, on which the impact fee calculations were based. Council Government Affairs Director James Touchton provided public comment urging the City Council to carefully consider the increased impact the new fees will have on new and existing residents and economic development in the City. You will recall in October of 2015, the Council worked with the City to reduce the Parks and Recreation fee by 50% from $6,215 in the draft ordinance to $3,107 per residential unit.

The Council will continue to work with Milton and other cities to encourage a fee schedule that allows for responsible and balanced growth while allowing the City to fund their priorities based on new development.
