[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Cortlandt as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Subdivision of land — See Ch. 265.
[Adopted 4-16-2002 by L.L. No. 2-2002]
The Town Board determines that it is appropriate that a fee be paid upon the development of all residential units created in the Town of Cortlandt. Previously, the recreation fee was only allowed with respect to newly created lots. However, due to recent legislation adopted by the New York State Legislature enacted into law by the State of New York, the Town Board is now authorized to impose said recreation fee on any units of housing created by virtue of special permits and/or site development plans. It is with this in mind that the Town Board is desirous of imposing a recreation fee on all new units of housing created within the Town.
There shall be imposed upon the creation of all residential units within the Town a recreation fee in the sum of $6,000 per lot and unit, as created. The method by which said units are created, either by subdivision, special use permit or site plan approval, shall be irrelevant, and the fee shall be due and payable for each and every residential unit created over and above the first unit.
The fee imposed herein shall be the same as established pursuant to § 265-11 of the Town Code.
