Pasco County Development Services is pleased to share a new, user-friendly, online Impact Fee Calculator to help new home buyers and developers easily view the estimated impact fees for residential property. Impact fees on new or proposed development projects help fund the additional public services needed to accommodate the growth.
“Impact fees are essential for supporting and maintaining county services such as schools, libraries, parks, and transportation – anything that would be impacted by building a new home,” said Central Permitting Accountant Austin Padova. “The new online calculator is an easy way to estimate those fees.”
