Building and Impact Fees

Nibley City building permits and impact fee information can be found here.

What are impact fees?

Impact fees are one-time charges imposed by local governments to mitigate the impact new development has on local infrastructure.  Residential and business growth requires the City to expand or enlarge our public facilities to maintain the level and quality of service we provide through our water, sewer, parks and road systems.  New growth pays for that expansion and enlargement so that all residents can benefit from our facilities and services. 

When does Nibley City charge impact fees?

Nibley City charges impact fees upon issuance of a building permit for new residential, commercial or industrial construction.  Impact fees are not charged for remodels, accessory buildings or additions, unless the addition is large enough to necessitate changing the size of the water meter.

Where can I find more information about impact fees?

The Property Rights Ombudsman for the State of Utah is an excellent resource for understanding impact fees.  Information can be found at:
