Fee-In-Lieu Payments

(updated 8/10/20)

As part of the Subdivision Regulations, there is a requirement to dedicate areas of land for public use, i.e. schools, fire stations, or other necessary public facilities. If a developer does not wish to do this, a fee-in-lieu of the dedication of public sites can be made.

Colorado Revised Statute (C.R.S.) 29-20-104.5 (5) provides that "Any impact fee or other similar development charge shall be collected and accounted for in accordance with." Colorado Revised Statute 29-1-803 states that, "At least once annually, the local government shall publish on its official web site, if any, in a clear, concise, and user-friendly format information detailing the allocation by dollar amount of each land development charge collected to an account or among accounts, the average annual interest rate on each account, and the total amount disbursed from each account, during the local government's most recent fiscal year."

RE-1 (West Routt) - $6,514
RE-2 (Steamboat Springs) - $182,162
RE-3 (South Routt) - $23,327
