System Development Charges (SDCs)

Rarely do house conversions to office or retail use trigger system development charges. Most conversions to retail or office (except perhaps a hair salon) wouldn't add plumbing fixtures, and so there would be no Sanitary SDC charged by the Bureau of Environmental Services. Houses more than 3,000 square feet in area could potentially be charged a Transportation SDC.
