Proposed Moratorium on Impact Fees

A new Facebook  group called Moratorium on Polk County Impact Fees  is advocating a 1 to 2 year moratorium on impact fees in order to stimulate job creation and economic growth.   According to the Lakeland Ledger, “one of the prime movers is Lakeland lawyer Robert Stanz, who has been lobbying commissioners lately arguing as the Polk County Builders Association has for years, that impact fees stifle development and hurt jobs, the recent building boom when impact fees were levied full tilt with little slowdown in development nothwithstanding.”  See full article at the Ledger website at:  http://county.blogs.theledger.com/11274/anti-impact-fee-group-organizes/

The Polk County Board of County Commissioners will decide on the moratorium at a public hearing on July 21, 2010 in Bartow.
