An impact fee is typically a one-time payment imposed by a local government on a property developer. The fee is meant to offset the financial impact a new development places on public infrastructure. Public infrastructure includes roads, schools, parks, recreational facilities, water and sewerage, among other services.
Representative Bret Hague sponsored a bill that limited impact fees to no more than 12.5% in a given year and no more than 50% over a four-year period. Governor DeSantis signed the bill into law. Brett Hage is Vice President for Residential Development for The Villages.
