TITLE
An Ordinance of the Mayor and City Council of the City of Maricopa, Arizona, adopting “Development Impact Fees” by reference which replaces Appendix A of Chapter 17 of the Maricopa City Code and providing for the severability and the effective date thereof. Discussion and Action.

AGENDA ITEM DESCRIPTION
In order to continue collecting Development Impact Fees, the City must comply with Arizona Revised Statute (ARS) §9-463.05, by updating the Land Use Assumptions (LUA) and Infrastructure Improvement Plan (IIP) prepared in 2014 by TischlerBise. TischlerBise was selected to prepare this update. The LUA section of the report incorporates information provided by City staff to establish current land use and projected land use in 10 years. Single-family, multi-family, commercial/retail, office, industrial and institutional uses of land have been projected to establish the need for growth-related infrastructure. The IIP section of the report is incorporated into the discussion of each fee category (Parks & Recreation, Libraries, Police, Fire and Streets).

The following three components must be included as part of adopting and collecting development impact fees. These components must be updated at least every five years.
