(City of Chubbuck Press Release, March 18, 2021)
Housing availability has been identified as the number one risk to the Southeast Idaho Economy, which has been impacted not only by the increasing costs of construction but also by the negative impacts of COVID-19. The City of Chubbuck has analyzed what it could do to encourage the availability of housing within this great CommUNITY. The Mayor and City Council have reviewed a recommendation from City Staff to have a temporary thirty percent (30%) reduction in both Water and Wastewater Capacity Fees to $1,575 per EDU for Water and $2,872 per EDU for the Wastewater Capacity fee for a period of twelve (12) months from the date the Incentive was adopted, which will be April 1, 2021.
The City has been working within its Strategic Plan to identify emerging strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for our CommUNITY to continue to be a great place to live, work, and raise a family. The City is excited to be able to do its part in the housing arena to assist those currently living in our CommUNITY and encourage those looking to relocate to this area, to build within our City limits.
