Millsboro OKs impact fee for parks and recreation

Posted

MILLSBORO — Town leaders have taken a step to fund parks and recreation.

During the recent budget approval process, staff and Town Council identified the need to establish an impact fee to accrue monies for the construction, acquisition and maintenance of parks and recreation facilities, as well as improvements.

The $500 cost was finalized at the July 1 council meeting, with members voting 7-0 to approve an amendment to the town code.

“It creates the new impact fee as its own stand-alone impact fee and also adds some new language added to the annexation impact fee because it will be a new component of the annexation impact fee,” said town solicitor Mary Schrider-Fox.

The impact fee is set at $500 per equivalent dwelling unit, assistant town manager Ashleigh Sander added.

Council’s approval also includes authorization to create a bank account for funds generated by the new fee, which joins others for water, wastewater, municipal facilities, transportation/stormwater and police protection.
