This study examined the effects of impact fees on school systems in growing communities. Many communities surrounding the Chicago area experienced growth, commonly referred to as sprawling growth. The additional population required enhancements and improvements to existing infrastructure (including schools) in the community. Local tax efforts to fund additional infrastructure arrived as late as two years after building new homes, creating a funding challenge. Communities used impact fees more frequently to provide immediate revenue before new construction began to help offset tax shortfall. However, the planning and structure of impact fees differed among municipalities. I selected two growing communities for this study and examined the responses of the school and municipal organizations.
