You may have heard recently
about discussions of impact fees at council. What are they, and
how do they affect you? Here is the scoop to give you a better
Impact fees are one-time fees
charged to builders by San Antonio Water System when a builder or
developer is connecting new businesses or residential
developments to the city’s water and wastewater system. The
impact fees charged to the builder pay for the costs of expanding
the system to serve the future customers that will live or work
in the new developments. Impact fees are not charged to
existing SAWS customers.
Impact fees are reviewed every
five years. They are based on the cost of providing service to
the future customers, and the distance of the building or
business from the central infrastructure. Generally, impact fees
are higher in the far northwest portion of the city, and lowest
in the central and southern portions.
After a citizens’ committee
review of proposed new impact fees, SAWS Board of Trustees
approved the new fees in April, and City Council is currently
considering them and is scheduled to vote in May.

The San Antonio Planning
Department is asking for community input on draft goals
and focus areas for the NE Loop 410 and I-35 Regional Center
Plan. The purpose of the Regional Center Plan is to help guide
long-range land use and community investment decisions as the
City grows over the next twenty years. The Plan addresses the
topics of what we build, how we get around, housing options,
parks and open space, and where we “live, work, and play.”
