Project Background and Purpose


Per Chapter 395 of the Texas Local Government Code (TLGC), Impact Fee Ordinances are mandated to be evaluated and updated every five (5) years. The last update for the Town of Argyle was completed on April 7, 2015, with no changes to the fee assessment rates (same rates from 2010 Impact Fee Study). The next update will need to be completed by April 28, 2020 (5 years from previous adoption).

The Planning and Zoning Commission, in its capacity as the Capital Improvements Advisory Committee (CIAC), is the review board for the impact fee update. The purpose of the Impact Fee Update is to revise the allowable impact fees that may be assessed for new development. The actual impact fees will be less than the allowable impact fee, and may be more or less than the current impact fee rate structure.
