Impact Fees

Effective Date of Impact Fees:

 October 1, 2019

Under Ordinance 9960, the City of Midland established Water, Wastewater, and Roadway Impact Fees. These Impact Fees are intended to assure the provision of adequate public facilities to serve new development in the City by requiring each such development to pay its share of the costs of new infrastructure needs created by that development. These fees do not replace platting obligations for public improvements required by City Code, although certain regionally-significant improvements identified on Council-adopted Capital Improvement Plans may receive credits against Impact Fees owed.

*Impact fees shall be collected at the time of building permit issuance*


FOR NEW DEVELOPMENTS THAT RECEIVED FINAL PLAT APPROVAL BEFORE 

OCTOBER 1, 2019:

  • Single-family home, townhouse, or duplex: Impact Fees will not be collected on any building permit issued before October 1, 2021. Any building permits issued after 09/30/2021 will be subject to the collection of impact fees.
  • All other developments: Impact Fees will not be collected on any building permit issued before October 1, 2020. Any building permits issued after 09/30/2020 will be subject to the collection of impact fees.


Roadway impact fees are calculated based on projected traffic generation, land use type, and service area (A, B, C, and D). Service area E has no roadway impact fees.

Water and Wastewater impact fees are determined by the size of the meter and are the same in all service areas. Water fees are assessed for both domestic and irrigation meters, and wastewater fees are assessed for domestic meters only.
