If you’re planning on building a new home, you could be facing more fees.
City hall is looking into the possibility of charging a growth fee to anyone who builds a new home.
Mayor Brian Bowman says there isn’t enough revenue coming into the city and something has to give.
“If you look at our infrastructure, you look at the structural operating deficit, the numbers don’t add up. The choice I believe is higher property taxes for existing homeowners or regulatory growth fees for those that choose to build,” said Bowman.
A consultant has been hired to look into the idea.
