Lunch-n-Learn on Proposed Water Development Fee Increases – October 6, 2021

Sep 23, 2021 | Member News

If you have plans to develop or redevelop a property, you won’t want to miss this online session. Utilities is proposing an increase of approximately 60%, or $68,200 per 325,851 gallons (or acre-foot) of use at the tap to the Water Supply Requirements (WSR) Cash-in-Lieu (CIL) Fee. In addition, the Utilities’ water, wastewater and stormwater plant investment fees (PIFs) are proposed to increase between 3-5%. Council is expected to decide about these changes on November 2 and 16, 2021. If approved, these new rates would go into effect beginning January 1, 2022.

Like most water providers across Colorado, Fort Collins Utilities is facing rising costs to acquire and develop water resources. To reflect these cost increases in how development is assessed for water supplies, Utilities will recommend that City Council consider these fee increases.
