About DCC’s:

DCCs are fees collected from land developers, on a user-pay basis, to help fund the cost of the new infrastructure and parks needed to service new development. DCCs help ensure developers pay their fair share of the costs required to develop new infrastructure and park improvements. The District has identified transportation, drainage, sanitary and park projects that need to be constructed to support the additional demands generated by new residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional development over the next 20 years.
