Impact Fees

Parking Fee in Lieu

The parking Fee-in-Lieu program establishes a parking bank to facilitate new development within the Land Development Code (LDC). This fee would be paid to the City, within a special fund, which could be leveraged later to construct a structured parking garage. 

A study was performed in 2017 (2017 Walker Study) to determine the engineer’s estimate of probable cost (“EOPC”).  The estimates are detailed in Figure 1 and adjusted annually.

Figure 1: Central City EPOC and O&M Summary

2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023
EPOC $30,000 $30,180 $30,360 $30,540 $30,730 $30,910 $31,100
O&M $270 $280 $285 $290 $300 $310 $320

 

The EOPC for 2021 is $30,730 per structured parking space. This figure excludes the operation and maintenance costs of the parking garage, once constructed. The fee would be charged gradually based on the spaces needed and the timeframe when parking was requested.

As October 8, 2020
