Subdivision Standards & Procedures
Subdivisions and System Development Fees/ Service Connections
Subdivision developments are expected both to pay a System Development Fee (SDF) and bear the cost of constructing water and/or sewer infrastructure within the development, including tie-in costs to connect to the utility network. The SDF is intended to represent the development’s pro-rata share of the cost of Infrastructure that would be required to serve that development. Pumping facilities, area transmission mains, etc.
Important considerations when buying property:
- Find out if water and/or sewer utilities are already in place.
- If water and/or sewer utilities have not been constructed, ask the developer/seller if they will be included in the sale, and if so, when they will be constructed.
- If water and/or sewer utilities are not included, you may be required to pay an additional amount to construct the infrastructure before you are granted an occupancy certificate.
