The City of Gresham has developed an online tool to allow prospective land developers and builders to estimate their project’s System Development Charges (SDCs). Gresham staff hopes this tool will help the development and building communities forecast and adjust their development costs quickly without having to wade through fee schedules and Council resolutions, or contact the City for revised estimates with each iteration of their project planning. The calculator can be accessed here.
Gresham reached out to HBA staff to promote this tool, but also seeking feedback. HBA staff will be reviewing the tool and will provide any relevant feedback on ensuring it’s as user friendly as possible. HBA commends Gresham for their work leveraging technology to provide more certainty in the building process.
