Impact Fee Program

The County’s Comprehensive Road Improvement Plan (CRIP) document includes an assessment of the roadway network, quantifies the anticipated new development upon which estimated improvements are based, identifies available funding sources, anticipated highway improvements and estimated costs. The CRIP and Impact Fee Ordinance regulate the administration of the program, the assessment and collection of fees and the suite of available discounts.

Fee Assessment and Discounts

Fees for new development throughout Kane County are based upon the proposed use of the property and the associated trip generation for individual land uses contained on the property. The fee is calculated by staff based upon materials submitted by the developer.  The Ordinance provides for the methodology used to calculate fees and also provides for various ways to reduce the fee due.  Please reference the Ordinance​ 22-27​​, Sections 8, 9, and 10 ​for more information about potential reduction in fees due.

A new assessment tool, the Simplified Individual Assessment​ is now available for instances where the impact fee does not reflect the unique impact of the new development.  The Simplified Individual Assessment allows the use of any of the land use codes available in the Institute for Traffic Engineers (ITE) Trip Generation Manual.  More information is found in the Procedure Manual​ and the Assessment may be initiated after a discussion with the KDOT Impact Fee Coordinator.​​​
