Industry Issues


A moratorium policy is a government regulation that halts construction activity. Moratoriums should not be imposed in an effort to solve infrastructure-related problems. Sound infrastructure planning is not a short-term fix. It is a long-term process that requires diligence, commitment, and professionalism on the part of professional planners and elected leaders.

Impact Fees

Impact fees are fees collected by a local government and are used as a tool to pay for new growth. Builders and developers pay a share of the impact their development has on the community’s public facilities; however, impact fees are ultimately paid by the purchaser


Stormwater is water that comes from precipitation (rain) and ice/snow melt.  It either soaks into the ground, evaporates, or collects and runs off from surfaces such as grass, trees, pavements, and roof tops into storm drain systems (pipes and/or ditch and stream networks) that ultimately makes its way to our streams.
