Impact Fees

Rosenberg is a desirable place to live and work. In recent years, the City has enjoyed a steady pace of growth in residential areas and welcomed new commercial and industrial developments. As our City grows, the need for additional utility service also increases.

Impact Fees

Water and Wastewater Impact Fees are collected in many communities to recoup the cost of constructing new water plants, wastewater treatment plants, lift stations, distribution lines, and other public infrastructure related to drinking water systems and wastewater treatment to accommodate new and future development. Simply put, when a new connection is made to the City’s water and/or sewer system, impact fees are assessed. Impact fees apply to all new residential, commercial, and industrial developments within the city limits of Rosenberg and are assessed at the time a building permit is issued.

On December 16, 2008, the City Council adopted an ordinance establishing revised impact fees for all property platted within the city limits after December 16, 2008. If your property was platted before the effective date of December 16, 2008 and you now wish to build on your platted property, please call the Rosenberg Permits Desk at (832) 595-3547 to determine the appropriate impact fee zone in place prior to this Ordinance and applicable impact fees for your project. All properties platted after December 16, 2008 will be subject to the impact fees listed in the table below.

For detailed information on the impact fees for the City of Rosenberg, please visit the City’s Code of Ordinances and review Chapter 29: Utilities, Article VI.
