Because of a state law past last year, counties may soon be imposing a different type of fee on new homes. This morning in Tampa government representatives, attorneys, developers, and community activists met for the Hillsborough County Mobility Fee public forum.

Peter Aluotto, Director of the Hillsborough County Planning & Growth Management Department said there will be advantages under the new law, SB 360 that requires that counties study mobility fees.

Sandra Goring of King Engineering, an infrastructure engineering firm, says there’s a difference between concurrency, which is used now and assesses impact fees, and SB 360 which proposes mobility fees

Land-use Attorney Kami Corbett of Foley & Lardner explained the intent of SB-360.

Scott Jones, vice president of operations for the developer Newland Communities put mobility fees and impact fees into perspective.
