System Development Charges

SDCs are a one-time charge for wastewater, water, stormwater, transportation and parks. SDCs are collected when a development permit is issued. The City uses SDC Revenue to:

  • Construct new public facilities as Gresham grows.
  • Pay for debt on already-built public facilities.
  • Parks, stormwater and transportation SDCs are higher in the newer urban growth areas of Pleasant Valley and Springwater, reflecting the higher costs to extend and construct facilities in these areas.
