System Development Charges (SDCs) are one-time charges assessed on new development (growth) to pay for the costs of expanding public facilities. Growth creates additional infrastructure demands; SDCs provide a mechanism to allow new growth in a community to pay for its share of infrastructure costs rather than existing taxpayers or utility ratepayers.
