Nolensville Passes Impact Fees on New Developments about 7 Years Too Late! Millions of $$$$'s LOST!

Buy this house now in Nolensville
and save over $25,000! 90-days from
now the price goes up on all new
development homes by $25,000 or

Nolensville will now charge $2,912.
per single home, which is higher
than both the U.S. and state average!
The town's road impact fees are more
than fees charged by both Franklin
and Smyrna.

"On a 3,000-square foot house, the
builder, or the buyer of the house or
the house builder himself will have
approximately $25,000 in impact fees,
adequate facilities tax, the sprinkler
system, the sewer and water taps,"
said vice-mayor Tommy Dugger.
Don't forget this vice-mayor served
for many years on the town board
and refused to charge impact fees
Which cost the town millions of $$'s!

Finally, the board realized just how
much money they have lost and voted
in impact fees. This may result in
many developers going elsewhere.
And the town would not be able to
collect these new fees that are sorely
needed in our town's budget.

Or developers may just include
the new impact fees in their prices
and keep on building--time will tell?

Developers and homebuyers in
Nolensville now face the highest of
any fees in Williamson County.
In Cheatham county they charge over
$7,000 per new home...and many,
many developers went elsewhere!

What happened in the past will help us learn.
Now that the impact fees are here to keep up with the Cost of Growth we hope that the funds will be spent wisely.

Those in leadership who wouldn't pass on the costs of growth to the building industry will have to deal with their decisions and the reasons for their actions.

The new Home Market is slowing down all over.
The value of Nolensville should not be solely based on how many new homes it has to offer.
It is a portion of what is important to our communities economic sucess however Nolensville residents are not to be viewed as just consumers to be taken advantage of.

Yall wanted a lot of the developers to go away so why are griping this time.

the ones that stay will pay.
It's as simple as that.
We dont pay a lot of Nolensville tax but the county something else.
I know plenty fo people say they would rather pay higher Nolensville taxes and have their peace and quiet back.

My neighbor said she read in the Tennessean Jan. or Feb. 07 that the state Attorney General said, " that impact fees by local cities were not being applied correctly and that they would have to get approval by general assembly." I wonder if Nolensville has approval from state to charge the highest impact fees, ever? Anybody remember the newspaper article please comment on it. Thanks.

I remember the article, but not the way 10:56 tells it. Nolensville has hired some expert to do the study that is mandatory. You would think if they weren't allowed to be passed someone in authority would know about it. I doubt they would be going ahead with it if the post above was correct.
And its not the highest impact fee ever. Its just the highest in the county. Everyone, especially developers, understands they have been coming for a long time.
People still want to live here and will pay whatever houses cost.

7:25? The way I read the article inthe newspaper Nolensville impact fees are the highest in the U.S. and in the county? Just read other comments about Attorney General not liking the impact fee procedures? No doubt these high fees will get his attention..what then? PS: I wish you didn't publish comments like 10:33 PM it makes Nolensville look bad.

The flood gates are already opened and thanks to Dugger and Lothers( and alexander) our small town is gone with the wind! Impact fees are needed for other things too, but they don't want to discuss these items. Welcome to the new Antioch.
