DEVELOPMENT IMPACT FEES
Due to changes in state law, effective 1/1/12, the City's development impact fee rates will be changing. The public facilities fee will be eliminated and police and fire fees will be reduced. The impact fee rate calculator will be updated with the new fee calculator on 1/3/12.

Impact fees are charged to new development as a means of paying for the facilities and infrastructure needed to serve that development. The City of Tucson currently assesses impact fees for water, roads, parks, police, fire, and public facilities. For information on water impact fees, please see Tucson Water's website under "Rates & Fees" at http://www.tucsonaz.gov/water/.
Impact Fee Deferral
On March 10, 2009, the Mayor and Council adopted a motion for the city to develop a process for the deferral of certain impact fees in exchange for a public benefit of a contribution to the City’s Housing Trust Fund. The motion restricted the deferral only to impact fees charged for roads, parks, and public facilities but not police and fire. The contribution amount would approximate an amount equal to half of the interest saved by not having to pay the impact fees at the time of building permit.
