General Permit Assistance
The City of Edmonds recently completed its General Facilities Charges (GFC) study.  GFCs are fees charged by the city for each new single-family-equivalent added to the City's utility system.  Based on this review significant changes are recommended in the GFCs for new development.  Findings of the study can be found in the FCS Group report below.

You are invited to attend the April 3, 2012 City council meeting where the public, especially developers and contractors, are encouraged to provide input related to this update.
