Canyon County Development Impact Fee Notice
Canyon County is currently accepting applications to serve on the Development Impact Fee Advisory Committee. We are looking to reboot this committee and appoint seven members to the committee, with some members appointed to two-year terms and some to four-year terms (in order to establish staggering moving forward). This committee shall serve in an advisory capacity and meet at least once a year. Some years will involve several meetings that can vary in length up to several hours each.
Development Impact Fees are established by and guided by Idaho Code, Title 67, Chapter 82, for the purpose of establishing “an equitable program for planning and financing public facilities needed to serve new growth…” The function of this advisory committee is best summarized in Idaho Code 67-8205 as follows:
  • Assist the governmental entity in adopting land use assumptions;
  • Review the capital improvements plan, and proposed amendments, and file written comments;
  • Monitor and evaluate implementation of the capital improvements plan;
  • File periodic reports, at least annually, with respect to the capital improvements plan and report to the governmental entity any perceived inequities in implementing the plan or imposing the development impact fees; and
  • Advise the governmental entity of the need to update or revise land use assumptions, the capital improvements plan, and development impact fees.
