Looks like construction is set to begin this month for the school in Durbin Crossing and the Nocatee school won't be far behind. Both are expected to open for the 2014-2015 school year.

The article mentioned the county will be paying for these 2 new schools by district issued bonds (certificates of participation - COPS - type of muni bond) and impact fees generated by new home construction.

Does anyone know how to figure out the impact fees?

I should have searched prior to sending out previous post.

Wow -- if this impact fee is accurate, I'm surprised at the high amount. I guess this fee is incorporated into the price of the home. I checked on the St. Johns county web site to see if I could confirm what I found in this article; but wasn't too successful. Here's an excerpt from March 2011 from the FlagerLive.com.

St. Johns Raises Impact Fees on Residential Construction, Decreases Them on Commercial

The St. Johns County Commission last week raised impact fees on residential construction between 13.5 and 16.5 percent, depending on square footage. The county lowered impact fees on commercial and industrial construction.
For houses smaller than 1,800 square feet, the impact fee will rise from $7,276 to $8,259. For houses larger than 1,800 square feet, the fee rises from $10,122 to $11,796.
In Flagler County, in comparison, the combined impact fee on single-family homes (including education, park and transportation impact fees) is $5,306. In Palm Coast, it’s $8,928.

The above article mentions a "third school for 9th graders only" to be built within 5 years.

Does anyone know more about that? Why would they have a 9th-only school rather than a full 9-12 High school? Is that to reduce overcrowding in the high schools like PVHS and Creekside?
