The City of New Braunfels established the Roadway Impact Fee Ordinance in 2007. Impact Fees are authorized under Chapter 395 of the Texas Local Government Code and are defined as a charge imposed against new development to pay for the off-site construction or expansion of infrastructure facilities that are necessitated by and benefit the new development.
Current Roadway Impact Fees
City Council adopted the current Roadway Impact Fee Ordinance on February 24, 2020. The ordinance includes updates to roadway impact fee assessment, calculation, collection and offset standards.
Assessment and collection of roadway impact fees are based on the date of final plat approval. For a development for which a plat is not required, assessment and collection are based on the issuance date of building permit.
City Council adopted the Policies and Procedures for Obtaining and Applying for Offsets and Credits Against Roadway Impact Fees on August 13, 2018. The resolution, policies and procedures, and associated applications are provided below.
