Impact Fee Program

Kane County’s Impact Fee Program operates in accordance with the Road Improvement Impact Fee Law of the State of Illinois (605ILCS 5/5-901 to et. seq.). The County’s Comprehensive Road Improvement Plan (CRIP) document includes an assessment of the roadway network, quantifies the anticipated new development upon which estimated improvements are based, identifies available funding sources, anticipated highway improvements and estimated costs. The CRIP and Impact Fee Ordinance regulate the administration of the program, the assessment and collection of fees and the suite of available discounts.

The Kane County Board approved an updated CRIP and Impact Fee ordinance and fee schedule on March 14, 2017. Approved copies of the Comprehensive Road Improvement Plan (CRIP) document and Ordinance 17-92-Impact Fees can be viewed by clicking the link below.

As required by State Law, the 2022 CRIP Update is underway with an anticipated completion of March, 2022. See below for information on the 2022 update.
