admin no comments

first_imgClark County commissioners are extending a holiday on several county development fees for another year.Commissioners unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday that continues the practice of reducing or removing development fees on new business construction in the county.The extension mostly keeps the status quo in place. The county will continue to waive 50 percent of fees for commercial developments, and 100 percent of fees for non-retail developments, if the business creates 10 new full-time jobs.The fees being waived are related to building, engineering and site planning costs on new construction. The county is also waiving or reducing traffic impact fees on the same eligible projects.The waived planning fees will be paid out of the county’s general fund, while the traffic impact fees will be paid for by the county’s road fund.‘Creating jobs’The extension introduces new language stating residential developments are not included in the fee holiday.Marty Snell, director of community development, said the original intent of commissioners was not to include residential development. The language was added in response to a 150-unit apartment complex that applied under the fee holiday in 2012 showing it could create 10 new jobs. The development is scheduled for construction this year in the 9000 block of North Hazel Dell Avenue. Snell said that development will be grandfathered into the fee holiday as it was approved in 2012.Commissioner David Madore has said several times in the past that he supports reducing fees, but not for high-density residential development. On Tuesday he confirmed that stance, saying he believes it “taxes that infrastructure to the max.”last_img read more
