Elk Grove reduces roadway impact fees

ELK GROVE - Due to annual inflation adjustments, the City of Elk Grove will be reducing roadway impact fees by more than 7 percent.

The city's Capital Facilities and Roadway development impact fees are tied to annual inflation adjustments updated annually on March 1.

While the CFFs are increasing by 4.09 percent based on CPI, the roadway fees are decreasing by 7.39 percent, based on a Caltrans statewide index of highway and road construction costs.

Fees will be reduced between $150 and $400 for a single family residential unit.
