In 2007 the City of New Braunfels adopted impact fees to offset the cost of new road construction. The Impact Fee Study is updated every 5 years.
Property platted prior to January 1, 2014 is subject to the 2007 Fee Schedule. The 2013 Fee Schedule applies to property platted on or after January 1, 2014.
Impact fees help pay for infrastructure extensions and improvements that are needed as the result of new development. Road impact fee calculations consider the anticipated burden a development will place upon existing roadways, and are based on location and type of development. Each land use has a different effect, so the fees differ.
