Capital Facilities Plan

The Washington State Growth Management Act requires that the Comprehensive Plan include a Capital Facilities Plan element. Skagit County revises its Capital Facilities Plan each year to update its capital facilities inventory and six-year financing plan.

Impact Fees

Impact fees are a type of one-time charge developers pay to help finance their proportionate share of the cost of the roads, parks, schools and other facilities necessary to serve their new developments. Impact fees are usually due at the time a building permit is issued. The funds collected cannot be used for operation, maintenance, repair, alteration, or replacement of existing capital facilities and cannot just be added to general revenue. The amount of the fee must be clearly linked to the added service cost, not some arbitrary amount.

Skagit County has adopted the impact fees of several school districts and cities and collects them within the unincorporated portions of those school districts and urban growth areas:
