The Committee on Community Affairs (Haridopolos) recommended the

following amendment:

3

4

     Senate Amendment (with title amendment)

5

     Between line(s) 2129 and 2130,

6

insert:

7

8

     Section 8.  Subsections (5), (6), and (7) are added to

9

section 163.31801, Florida Statutes, to read:

10

     163.31801  Impact fees; short title; intent; definitions;

11

ordinances levying impact fees.--

12

     (5) In any challenge filed regarding the validity of an

13

impact fee, the local government imposing the fee has the burden

14

of proving, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the fee

15

calculation is directly proportional and limited to the actual

16

need and impact created by the development for which the fee is

17

assessed, that the fee is based upon the actual cost of any

18

capital improvements for which the fee will be expended, and that

19

the capital expenditures paid for by the impact fee provide a

20

direct benefit to the property upon which the fee is imposed.

21

     (6) An impact fee may not be assessed unless the local

22

government has determined that the capital costs offset by the

23

impact fee are specifically and uniquely attributable to the

24

development against which the fee is proposed to be assessed and

25

that the capital expenditures paid for by the impact fee provides

26

a direct benefit to the property for which the fee was assessed.

27

     (7)(a) Any local government that imposes an impact fee must

28

include in the calculation of the amount of the fee to be paid a

29

credit for the full present value of all taxes, fees,

30

assessments, liens, charges, or other payments of any kind that

31

have been or will be directly paid by the fee payer or property

32

owner to the local government or other service provider and that

33

will be used to construct capital facilities of the same type for

34

which the impact fee is imposed. The calculation of the credit

35

shall estimate such payments for a period of not less than 30

36

years; shall include adjustments in the estimated annual payments

37

to account for inflation, increased taxable values, and increased

38

payments; shall use a discount rate no greater than the current

39

costs of borrowing to finance such capital improvements; and

40

shall be based upon the estimated payments from new developments

41

and the estimated taxable value of property on which a new

42

development is located. The basis for the calculation of a credit

43

does not include an "average valuation" of all existing

44

developments.

45

     (b) A local government that imposes an impact fee shall

46

also provide a credit for all taxes or other payments of any kind

47

through state, federal, or other revenues that the local

48

government anticipates to expend for the construction of the same

49

type of capital facilities for which the impact fee is imposed.

63

government to provide a credit for taxes or other payments

64

through state, federal, or other revenues under certain
