System Development Charges (SDC's)

*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.

 

  • TRANSPORTATION SDCs:  The existing methodology for the Transportation SDCs was not changed during the recent review however; the project list was revised and updated to reflect the most recent additions and/or completion of projects to date.  A link to this methodology can be found below.

  • LOCAL WASTEWATER SDCs:  A new methodology for Local Wastewater was 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 completions in conjunction with the adopted 2008 Local Wastewater Master Plan.  A link to this methodology can be found below.
