The city council finds and determines that growth and development activity in the city will create additional demand and need for sanitary sewer, publicly owned parks, open space and recreational facilities, storm drainage and culinary water facilities in the city; and the city council finds that growth and development activity should pay a proportionate share of the cost of such planned facilities needed to serve the growth and development activity. The city council further finds that impact fees are necessary to achieve an equitable allocation to the costs borne in the past and to be borne in the future, in comparison to the benefits already received and yet to be received. Therefore, pursuant to Utah Code Annotated, title 11, chapter 36a (the "impact fees act"), the city council adopts this chapter to assess impact fees for planned facilities. The provisions of this chapter shall be liberally construed in order to carry out the purposes of the city council in establishing the impact fee program. (Ord. 2013-07, 5-28-2013, eff. 9-1-2013)
