Given the major housing boom that contributed to economic growth in the US from 2003 through 2008, some of the revenues that local governments received were from development impact fees. Development impact fees are charges imposed on a developer to offset the additional costs of the new development that is imposed on society. New developments are very important for local economies given the benefits that they provide. Now, new developments are slowly starting to be established, which has many implications for local communities. What role should the local governments provide with regard to alternative solutions or reduction in fees given the positive externality that is provided by these new developments?Compare and contrast the options that the local governments will need to discuss given the lack of resources that are currently available.
