Infill Development

As part of the City of Abilene’s new Infill Strategy, fees for permits in designated areas will be eligible for a 50% fee reduction.  In order to qualify for the fee reduction, the permit must be related to a project with a total investment of at least $50,000. 

The proposed development or redevelopment project must create a minimum investment of $50,000 in new private property improvements.  Minor improvements, including normal remodeling, replacement of mechanical equipment, and the like will not be eligible for incentives.

Determining eligibility for building permits is based on the valuation of the project.  All other permits will require approval for work related to a larger project to satisfy the minimum $50,000 requirement. The amount must be verified by checking for an active building permit and the permit valuation.
