Impact Fees

Mission: The Impact Fee Program exists to finance the cost of new roads, parks, fire services and schools necessitated by new development activity within Volusia County. Program team members are committed to educating and navigating our customers through the impact fee review process while accurately assessing fees in a timely fashion.

What is an impact fee?

Volusia County has four growth-related impact fees, including Transportation (roads), Education (schools), Parks & Recreation, and Fire Rescue. Impact fees are charges that pay for the cost of new or expanded county facilities needed to serve new residential and non-residential development.
