The City is temporarily waiving transportation, stormwater, and local wastewater system development charges (SDCs) for housing sold affordably to income-qualified households. The income limit is 80% of the area median income (AMI), and the compliance period is five years. The waiver is not available for rental housing development, and Metropolitan Wastewater Management Commission and Willamalane Park and Recreation District SDCs are still in effect. Please see the program guidelines and administrative steps for details and additional requirements.
The waiver program is application-based, and availability is limited. The City will waive SDCs on a “first come-first served” basis for qualifying applications until $300,000 of charges have been waived for the program or December 31, 2025, whichever comes first. The program may close without notice, please check with staff before submitting an application.
