Planning & Development Department Fee Modifications
The Planning & Development Department, in coordination with the Finance and Legal Departments, completed a comprehensive review of existing and authorized development-related fees administered by the Department. The purpose of the review was to align the fees collected with cost accrued by the City for providing the service. A review of this scope and detail has not been completed in over a decade.
City Council adopted the changes to the Department’s fees in December 2015. The new fees go into effect on Tuesday, March 1, 2016. To view the fee modifications, please click here.
