City of Phoenix Documents

Several documents create the framework for the assessment and collection of Development Impact Fees in the city of Phoenix. First, the Development Impact Fee Ordinance (Chapter 29 of the Phoenix Code of Ordinances) establishes the procedures and standards for the creation of the Development Impact Fee Program.  To see this ordinance, use the following link to codepublishing.com, which publishes the Phoenix Code of Ordinances online:

If you are looking for information on how Development Impact Fee amounts were calculated, the research and analysis behind the establishment of the fees are established in the Infrastructure Financing Plan (IFP) for the city of Phoenix. The most recent IFP was approved on November 30, 2011, and was effective January 1, 2012.

For information regarding capital facilities funded by discontinued Impact Fees, please see the previously approved 2006 Infrastructure Financing Plan Appendices.
