§ 52.01  FINDINGS.
   (A)   The state legislature, through the enactment of ORS 223.297 to 223.314, has authorized local governments in the state to establish system development charges (SDC) on new development.
   (B)   The imposition of SDCs ensures that new development bears a proportionate share of the cost of providing essential capital facilities and improvements necessary to accommodate the development as determined in a methodology as outlined in ORS 223.297.
   (C)   SDCs established by this chapter are derived from, and based upon, and do not exceed the cost of maintaining the existing level of services necessitated by the new development for which the fee is levied.
