The Bend City Council is considering if they want to continue the System Development Charges Deferral Program for another year.

 

The SDC's are collected when a builder pulls permits to build homes or commercial buildings, and those fees could be hefty.

 

Assistant City Manager Jon Skidmore says the deferral will give them up to nine months to pay those fees. "If they can hold off on the SDC payments, I think it's about $20,000, somewhere in there, it's a benefit for them to be able to push that off until they have a final purchaser for the home.  It's an annual program and the council wants to have the ability to review the effectiveness of it on an annual basis."

 

Skidmore says the fees are used to build or improve roads, water and sewer systems, transportation and the Bend Parks and recreation department.

 

He adds they could approve the deferral program in just a few weeks - just before the current program ends.
