Current Impact Fees

Roads and Parks

In accordance with Arizona Revised Statutes 9-463.05, the The Town of Marana has adopted impact fees at various times. The most recent impact fee update was in 2014 under Marana Ordinance 2014.12. At that time, new impact fees were calculated for northeast roads, parks, water and sewer. Two impact fees that were only being collected to pay back prior debt, south roads and lower Santa Cruz levee, were re-affirmed. A northwest roads fee was allowed to lapse August 1, 2014.

The impact fee schedule for roads and parks shows the required base impact fees for various land use categories. These base fees do not take into account any creditable infrastructure that a development may provide.  

To aid in the assessment of impact fees, an Impact Fees by Subdivision chart showing residential developments for which creditable infrastructure is known and their subsequent net impact fees is maintained by the Town.
