School Impact Fees Can Be Used for Technological Infrastructure

Section 11-12-5 of the Illinois Municipal Code authorizes municipalities to impose impact fees or developer donations for school grounds, among other purposes, so long as the imposed fees or donations are "specifically and uniquely attributed to the development or subdivision in question."   "School grounds" is defined under the statute to include land or site improvements, school buildings, and other infrastructure.  The law was recently amended by P.A. 98-0741 to expand the definition of "school grounds" to also include "technological infrastructure."  The law becomes effective January 1, 2015.
