Environmental Services is updating the administrative rule governing System Development Charges. The current rule has not been substantively updated in more than 15 years. Updates to the rule were made in 2019 as part of a larger update related to administrative review. Over the past 15 years, there have been significant changes in the types of development subject to sewer and stormwater SDCs. This update seeks to create clarity and consistency for City staff and the community by formalizing and updating the SDC methodology and eliminating obsolete information.
The proposed rule revision:
The most significant elements of the proposal include specifying Equivalent Dwelling Units (EDUs) and Plumbing Fixture Units (PFUs) per EDU for several residential and nonresidential occupancy types. The goal of the proposed revisions is to ensure consistent sewer and stormwater SDC calculations for certain development not previously addressed in rule.
The proposed ENB-4.05 rule and a fact sheet summarizing the changes are below.
Environmental Services received no requests for a public hearing, so the hearing has been cancelled.
Environmental Services accepted public comment on the proposed rule from Monday, June 15 through Tuesday, July 14, 2020. The public comment period is now closed.
