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 scheduling an equipment check.
