On June 2, 2015, City Council adopted the new Impact Fee Ordinance for the City of Keller. This action included the adoption of revised land use assumptions for the City, adopting revised Water, Wastewater, and Roadway Capital Improvements Plans and impact fee analysis, adopting revised Water, Wastewater, and Roadway Impact Fees, and adopting a revised Schedule 1 Assessment Rates and Schedule 2 Collection Rates for water, wastewater, and roadway impact fees
Purpose of Impact Fee Ordinance:
The City of Keller currently assesses water, sanitary sewer, and roadway impact fees in accordance with Chapter 395 of the Texas Local Government Code (TLGC). An impact fee is a charge or assessment imposed by a City on new development in order to generate revenue for funding or recouping the costs of capital improvements or facility expansions necessitated by and attributable to new development. Chapter 395 requires any city imposing an impact fee to update the land use assumptions and capital improvements plan at least every five years. The City of Keller's land use assumptions, roadway capital improvement plan, and impact fees were last updated on June 2, 2015 (Ordinance No. 1741). The Planning and Zoning Commission, in its capacity as the Capital Improvements Advisory Committee (CIAC), is the review board for the impact fee update. The purpose of the Impact Fee Update is to revise the allowable impact fees that may be assessed for new development. The actual impact fees will be less than the allowable impact fee, and may be more or less than the current impact fee rate structure.

Impact Fee Ordinance Semi-Annual Reviews:
Chapter 395 of the Texas Local Government Code prescribes the manner by which cities may enact impact fees to recover a portion of the costs of infrastructure related to growth and development. In addition to helping develop the impact fee study, the Capital Improvements Advisory Committee (CIAC) is charged with monitoring the administration of a city’s impact fee program. Staff prepares semi-annual reports of growth and development, and expenditures on water, wastewater, and roadway impact fee projects. These reports are reviewed by the CIAC, and the CIAC’s findings on the report are forwarded to City Council.
A CIAC meeting was held on Monday, July 27, 2015, to approve the Semi-Annual Impact Fee Report as to the progress of the Capital Improvements Plan of the City of Keller Water, Wastewater, and Roadway Impact Fee Study.
