SDC FUNDS-WHO’S MONEY?

.

At last Wednesday’s (11/9/22), Special Road District (SRD) meeting we reported that SRD
Chairperson Sue Haley provided some recent updates regarding SDC (System Development
Charge) funds and projects.

.

She, thought, but wasn’t sure, the SDC amount currently available was $177,000. She also confirmed the SRD is proceeding with the construction of the Apron Project.

.

We reported that we checked with the Jefferson County website and confirmed the current SDC funds available as $281,656.60, but the amount is actually $286,818 according to
Jefferson County Administrator Jeff Rasmussen.

.

Some of our readers have asked us about SDC funding

.

Who administers it, how it works and who control the actual funds?

.

Rasmussen confirmed the SDC funds are not owned or controlled by the Crooked River Ranch (CRR) Association or CRR/SRD.

.

Rasmussen provided information that explains,

“A System Development Charge (SDC) is a one-time charge on new development and certain types of redevelopment, which increase the expected demand on the county’s transportation system.”

SEE ATTACHED REPORT FOR FURTHER DETAILS that includes the current PER DWELLING ROAD SDC amount as $2,160.48.

.

As an aside, the MacPherson Development Proposal to build 54 residential lots on CRR would
be subject to the PER DWELLING CHARGE along with other fees.
