Impact Fee Estimator

Ordinance No. 4889-1427 adopting and amending Development Impact Fees (Impact Fees) for the City of Prescott, went into effect on August 1, 2014. Three Impact Fees were adopted, a “Water Resource Development Fee”, “Development Fees for Water System Impacts” and “Development Fees for Wastewater System Impacts”.

The amount of each fee is based on the size of the water meter. Most (but not all) single-family residential properties will use a 5/8” water meter. The size of the water meter is primarily based on the number of fixture units within the structure. In the event that a one-inch meter is required solely as a result of being equipped with an automatic fire sprinkler system, the Impact Fees to be assessed shall be 5/8″ meter size. This shall not apply to a residential unit that exceeds 5,000 square feet in size.

Impact Fees are based on both the size of the meter and the service area in which the parcel is located. To estimate the cost of the Impact Fees, enter a parcel number into the estimator below. If you don’t know your parcel number you can look it up on the Yavapai County GIS Website.

The estimator is for “Impact Fees” only, the total shown below does NOT include any building permitting fees, the cost of the physical meter, tax on the meter or tapping fees. Also, if there is no box and yoke on the property or the box and yoke is required to be upsized, additional fees are required for these services. Please call 928-777-1269 if you have questions.

FAQ

  • No, once Impact Fees are paid, they are non-refundable.

  • No, all Impact Fees paid shall apply to the real property upon which the structure is located and Impact Fees are not transferable between properties.

  • Monies received for Impact Fees must be accounted for separately from other monies the City collects per Arizona Revised Statues. As a result, if the Council chose to waive Impact Fees assessed on a specific development, the City is required by State law to reimburse the appropriate Impact Fee accounts for the amount that was waived from another funding source.

  • Impact Fees are based on the size of the water meter. If additional water fixtures are added that warrant an upsizing of an existing water meter the Impact Fees to be paid would be the difference between the current Impact Fee for the existing meter versus the current Impact Fee for the upsized meter.

  • To calculate the size of the water meter needed fill out the City “Utility Tie-in Application and Fixture Tabulation Sheet”. Then, call 928-777-1269 or visit the City of Prescott Permit Center located at 201 S Cortez St. A Public Works representative will be able to assist with sizing of the water meter.

  • A residential unit is a room or group of room s within a building containing cooking accommodations, and used or designed or intended for use or occupancy by an individual or individuals as common living quarters. An apartment, manufactured home, modular home and mobile home shall be considered a residential unit, but a hotel room or motel room is not considered a residential unit for the purposes of assessing Impact Fees.

  • Impact Fees are paid at the time of issuance of a building permit. The amount of the fees is based on the size of the water meter required to serve the property and the location.

  • Alterations or expansions of existing residential structures where no additional residential units are created and where no additional demand for services is created by the alteration or expansion.

  • In the event that a one-inch meter is required solely as a result of a residential unit being equipped with an automatic fire sprinkler system, the Impact Fee to be assessed shall be based on a 5/8” water meter size, however, this exception does not apply to residences that are 5,000 square feet or more in size.
