2019 Impact Fee Update

Chapter 395 of the Texas Local Government Code mandates that impact fees be reviewed and updated at least every five years. The City of McKinney last performed a review and update of impact fees in 2013. Accordingly, staff initiated the 2019 Impact Fee Update. 

Recently, staff presented a 3-part information series on the 2019 Impact Fee Update process to the Capital Improvement Advisory Committee and City Council. These presentations include a look at what Impact Fees are, what they mean for McKinney in 2020, and what any new fees are anticipated to be. A link to each of these presentations can be found on the 2019 Impact Fee Setting page.

The next presentation will be at the Capital Improvements Advisory Committee meeting on October 27, 2020. At this meeting staff will present the proposed fees and gathering the Committee's comments to be forwarded on to the December 1, 2020 City Council Public Hearing on the 2019 Impact Fee Update in Council Chambers.

As required by state law, updating impact fees involves three components:

  • Land Use Assumptions (Approved)
  • Capital Improvements Plans (Posted)
  • Fee Setting / Adopting the Ordinance
