York County is exploring the idea of increase impact fees on new homes and apartments in Fort Mill.  Patrick White with the Fort Mill School Board said if the full impact fee is passed…and growth truly pays for growth….the new bonds would be payed for by the impact fees collected over the next 3 years.

Many worry that increasing impact fees would kill growth.  Christy Spears Chair of the Fort Mill School Board does not believe that to be true.

Spears said people will move to live where they want to live and will find a way to make it work financially.
