*NEW* SDC SCOPING SHEET
System Development Charges (or SDCs) are charges imposed on development so
that government may accumulate the capital needed to provide sufficient capacity
in infrastructure systems to accommodate the development. The City of
Springfield imposes systems development charges for transportation, sanitary
sewer, and storm drainage infrastructure.
Beginning in late 2008, City of
Springfield began a comprehensive review of the three existing SDC System
Methodologies. This review has been completed and the links below denote the
adopted methodologies for Transportation, Local Wastewater, and Stormwater SDCs.

adopted by City Council on 06/01/2009. Additionally, a new Local Wastewater
Project List was adopted and reflects the most recent additions and/or
