[ARCHIVED] Recreation fees extended to non-residential buildings

An amendment to Cranberry’s land development ordinance to assess one-time recreational fees on new commercial and institutional buildings in the Township was approved by the Board of Supervisors at their June 5 meeting. Since the mid-1990s, only residential units had been charged the fee – formerly $1,050 per living unit, now $1,022 – payable at the time their building permits were issued. Alternatively, developers could dedicate land for public recreational use as part of their projects, but few actually choose to do so, primarily because the value of the land typically exceeds the amount of the fee. The proposed recreational fee ordinance assesses non-residential buildings at $918 for every 2,500 square feet under roof; public schools and municipal buildings are exempt from the ordinance. Recreational fees will be used to finance Cranberry’s Recreation and Parks Master Plan.
