PRK-4.02 - System Development Charges For Residential Additions

SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT CHARGES FOR RESIDENTIAL ADDITIONS

Administrative Rule Adopted by Portland Parks & Recreation Pursuant to Rule-Making Authority

ARB-PRK-4.02


RULE

Until January 1, 2018, Park System Development Charges (SDCs) shall not be collected on building permit applications for residential alterations or additions that do not increase the dwelling capacity of the residence.


RATIONALE

Per PCC 17.13 Parks and Recreation System Development Charge, new development contributes to the need for capacity increases for parks and recreation facilities. With the new methodology and fee structure that went into effect July 1, 2016 per Ordinance 187150, as amended by Ordinance 187770, Parks could begin to collect SDCs on residential additions as well as new residential development. For the first year and a half of the new fee structure and methodology, until January 1, 2018, Parks considered additions to existing residential units to be the same proposed and previous use, and will therefore not collect a fee if the addition would have caused the residential unit to be assessed in a different use type category (based on square footage).
