King County Updates its School Impact Fee Schedule for 2019

The King County Council has unanimously passed ordinance 2018-0462 to adopt 2019 school impact fees and school capital facility plans.

School impact fees are updated every year after a review by the School Technical Review Committee of the districts’ capital facilities plans. School impact fees in King County apply only to new single-family and multifamily units in unincorporated areas and do not apply to remodeling or replacement, qualified low- or moderate-income housing, or accessory dwelling units.

The most notable increases include the SF fee in Issaquah School District from $8,762 to $15,276 and the SF fee in Northshore School District from $10,573 to $16,038. The Federal Way School District MF fee has decreased from last year’s $20,086 to $19,454 per unit. View the staff report with a full fee comparison.
