Concurrency review allows the necessary public facilities and services to maintain the adopted level of service standards to be available when the impact of development occurs.
The fair share program is applicable to proposed developments that are denied a concurrency reservation certificate (CRC) because of a failure to meet the transportation concurrency standards. This program would require a project to contribute its proportionate share of the cost of a transportation facility. The contribution would be made in the form of a monetary payment, authorized construction of a road improvement, or a combination of the two methods. A pre-application meeting is required within 45 days of the CRC denial and prior to submittal of a fair share application. The pre-application meeting provides an opportunity to discuss eligibility requirements, application submittal requirements, fair share methods including an estimated fair share obligation, and any other issues determined necessary.
Road Impact Fees
The Road Impact Fee Ordinance requires that an impact fee be collected for all new development to fund the construction of necessary road improvements attributable to growth. For the purposes of calculating road impact fees, Clay County is divided into two different impact fee areas. The rates for land uses within each area have been determined by an impact fee study which considers the amount of available roadway capacity and the specific roadway impacts of individual land uses. The road impact fee is assessed at the time a complete building permit is submitted and must be paid prior to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy.
