Most proposed amendments will have little or no economic impacts. The addition of Rule 11(B) will increase costs (fees) to certain developers of subdivisions who are not presently paying fees based on the construction costs of houses that are built by others on such subdivisions. Costs will increase if hearings are required to be renoticed. (Rule 10(H)).
