Impact Fees

In order to maintain adopted levels of park service, transportation facilities, and impacts on the school district, the City has adopted Impact Fees as a mechanism to charge and collect funds to ensure that all new development bears its proportionate share of the capital costs.

Ch 19.12 of the Gig Harbor Municipal Code defines:

  • How impact fees are calculated
  • How to request credits from impact fees
  • Establishing the time for making a credit request
  • The manner in which credit will be given for unconstructed system improvments
  • The method for appeal of a requested credit towards an impact fee
  • The effect of a developer's early payment of impact fees
     

Current partial list of Impact Fees:

 

  • Park Impact Fees - Residential .................................... $1,500.00
  • Transportation Impact Fee Residential Only .............. $2,124.00
  • School Impact Fees -- Residential ............................... $3,343.00  
  • School Impact Fees -- Multi-family Units .................... $1,763.00 per unit
