Impact fees for golf courses (i.e., tees, fairways, greens, accessory structures such as golf cart houses, etc.) are due and payable prior to the issuance of the
development order for the golf course. The golf course club house and related club house facilities will not be included in the impact fee calculation for the golf course. Impact fees for the club house and related facilities will be calculated separately, at the time of building permit issuance for these facilities, based upon the uses encompassed by the club house facility.
Impact fees become due and payable at the time of building permit issuance. For purposes of the code, a building permit is considered "issued" when the permit meets all of the following criteria:
- Has been approved by the County
- Has been picked up by the owner or his agent
- All applicable fees have been paid
NOTE: The development order process is separate and distinct from the building permit process and not relevant with respect to establishing when impact fees become due and payable, except as to golf courses and RV parks.
