(A)   This subchapter shall be known and may be cited as the Public Facilities Impact Fee Code.
   (B)   Implementing a regulatory plan that requires new development to pay a public facilities impact fee that does not exceed a pro rata share of the reasonably anticipated expansion of police substation facilities, and general administrative facilities (the “public facilities”) needed to serve new growth and development is a responsibility of the town in order to carry out the future land use and capital improvement elements of the town’s comprehensive plan, as amended and adopted pursuant to F.S. Ch. 163.3161 et seq., and is in the best interest of the health, safety, economic order, aesthetics and welfare of the citizens of the town and the region.
   (C)   The purpose of the Public Facilities Impact Fee Code is to enable the town to allow growth and development to proceed in the town in compliance with the comprehensive plan, and to regulate growth and development so as to require growth and development to share in the burden of growth by paying its pro rata share for the reasonably anticipated expansion costs of the major police substation and general administrative facilities. The town through this code seeks to provide an equitable, fair share basis for new and expanded public facilities commensurate with the impacts and need generated by new development.
   (D)   It is not the purpose of this Public Facilities Impact Fee Code to collect fees from growth and development in excess of the cost of the reasonably anticipated improvements to the public facilities needed to serve the new growth and development. The Town Council hereby finds that the public facilities impact fee has been determined in a conservative and reasonable manner.
