Montgomery Township Supervisors are considering an ordinance that they hope will more fairly balance the burden of development impact fees.
The ordinance would set fees differently for residential and nonresidential construction. Under the current informal arrangement, developers pay $500 per building lot, whether they build a single-family home or a three-story office building. The supervisors said they do not believe commercial and industrial developers are paying their fair share.
At Monday night's meeting, the board asked the solicitor to draft an ordinance that would charge nonresidential developers by the square foot and residential developers $500 per lot.
