News & Announcements

The Volusia County Council voted yesterday to accept the recommendation of the Duncan Associates study to raise impact fees to the rates published in the September 2018 study. Council decided to phase in the fees over 2 years, with 75% implemented in year 1 and the remaining 25% in year 2. Fees will also be annually indexed using the FDOT construction cost index thereafter within a minimum and maximum range.

Volusia County Council directed staff to coordinate four public meetings around the county to present findings from the recent updated Impact Fee Study by Duncan & Associates. And allow for public input on the direction Council should take regarding possibly raising impact fees.

Our Mission

To be a forum for collaboration between the public and private sectors in all aspects of land development, and to provide educational programs that further the idea of responsible development in Volusia and Flagler Counties.
