7.2 Cost of Development Goals & Policies
New development within unincorporated Pima County can have an impact on infrastructure and services in adjacent jurisdictions. This is particularly true when new development occurs near jurisdictional boundaries or involves regional systems, such as the transportation or wastewater systems. Regional cooperation is necessary to ensure that resources are available to address the impacts of development on both County and regional systems in order to effectively promote the development of Focused Development Investment Areas (growth areas).
7.3 Available Mechanisms to Fund & Finance Developement
The County has a menu of options it can use to fund and finance development costs to allow the public and private sectors to partner and find the best cost recovery approach for each new development. The County also has the flexibility to adjust as additional methods become available.
7.4 Cost of Development Community Indicators
The effectiveness of the Cost of Development element will be reflected in the County’s annual budgeting process.
