Impact Fees

Overview
On November 3, 2011, the City Council approved Ordinance 17, 2011 (PDF), which updated the costs for the city’s impact fees. The purpose of impact fees is to ensure that new development bears a proportionate share of the cost of capital expenditures necessary to provide fire rescue, police, parks and recreation, and roadway services in the City of Palm Beach Gardens.

Section 78-95 of the city’s Land Development Regulations requires a Periodic review of the schedule of impact fees to update costs, credits, and generation rates. The calculations used for this update were the most recent data localized to Palm Beach Gardens. Since the last update of the City of Palm Beach Gardens’ impact fees (2004), the County has introduced a number of new land use / development categories, which have been introduced into the adopted Palm Beach Gardens’ impact fees.
The following impact fee schedule are the fees necessary for development in Palm Beach Gardens effective February 2, 2012.
