The Coeur d’Alene Planning Commission on Tuesday recommended that the City Council adopt proposed Capital Improvement Plans and increases in impact and annexation fees.
The hearing with the council to adopt the CIPs is scheduled Nov. 21. The hearing to adopt an impact fee study and update fees is tentatively scheduled for Dec. 5.
The impact fees would pay for future improvements in parks, transportation, police and fire departments to keep up with growth.
The proposed impact fees would raise the cost of a new 2,500-square-foot single-family home in Coeur d’Alene about $9,000.
Under the Capital Improvement Plans, the city has identified about $9 million in fire department needs, including a new fire station, land for expansion ladder truck and fire truck. All are impact-fee eligible.
