DuPage County Eliminates Impact Fee Program

The DuPage County Board has voted to repeal the Fair Share Road Improvement Impact Fee Ordinance. According to the DuPage County press release, the move will save builders, developers, and homeowners almost $1 million dollars per year.

The fee was implemented in 1988 for highway capital improvement and was designed during a time of major population and economic growth.

DuPage County Board Chair, Deborah Conroy, says that by eliminating the fee, the county will streamline construction processes and give developers more reasons to locate new building projects or improve existing buildings in the county.
