System Development Charges for Parks, Trails & Natural Areas
System Development Charges (SDCs) are one-time fees assessed on new development to cover a portion of the cost of providing specific types of public infrastructure required as a result of this development. Park SDCs help ensure that Portland's quality of life keeps pace with our growing and changing city by providing additional parks and recreation facilities needed to accommodate growth.
If you have a question about SDC fees, please call 503-823-5105 or send an email with your request to: Park SDC. The Parks 2015 Methodology Update was adopted by City Council on May 27, 2015. Methodology changes will take effect July 1, 2016.
