Governmental Affairs
1.      During the Sumter County Commission meeting on March 23rd, the Commission approved an increase of 75% in road impact fees. The new impact fee increase is 70% of the maximum value. This change will go into effect on June 28th, 2021. Stay tuned to our weekly Navigator for an updated schedule of impact fees.
2.      During the Tavares City Council meeting on March 17th, sign ordinance 2021-01 was approved. This increases the maximum length of time a temporary sign can be placed on a property during the calendar year, from 90 days to 120 days. The ordinance also removed the language preventing signs on vacant properties. Temporary signs are exempt from permitting requirements.
