Impact Fees

Impact fees are one-time fees that are paid to the District by developers/individuals who construct new housing, commercial/retail, office or industrial buildings in the Snyderville Basin (the un-incorporated area surrounding Park City). These fees contribute to the capital costs associated with the demand that new development places on our parks, trails and recreation facilities. Impact fees are not collected for additions to existing homes, residential remodels, commercial remodels that do not increase the square footage, and electrical and plumbing work.

Impact fees will be no higher than $3,443.89 per unit of residential housing. Commercial projects (retail, office, industrial, hotel, etc.) are assessed on the project size at $.56 per square foot. After review of the plans, a fee will be computed and then adjusted down to account for the value of the anticipated future property taxes the property owner will pay to retire Basin Recreation’s outstanding general obligation bonds. Credits are available on a case-by-case basis if you have, without compensation, constructed and dedicated to Basin Recreation any of the capital facilities planned to be built by Basin Recreation. For more information, please refer to the Impact Fee Enactment Resolution.

Impact fees must be paid prior to issuance of any building permit for new construction. Please email the completed application and building plans to districtadmin@basinrecreation.org. If you are unable to email the information, you may bring the completed application, along with your building plans, to the District Office at 5715 Trailside Drive, Park City, Utah for review. Payment must be made in person, by check. After payment, a receipt will be provided for presentation to the Summit County Building Department. An application can be found here: Impact Fee Application.
