System Development Charges
System Development Charges (SDC) are fees charged when a new residence is built. Through this fee, newcomers to the community pay their share of the costs to build the new parks, trails and recreation facilities needed to serve them. The BMPRD SDC ordinance requires a review and update of the fee calculation every five years. This ensures that the population estimates, facility inventories, construction costs and land prices used to calculate the fee are up-to-date and accurate.
