On August 1, 2018, the City entered into an agreement with Revenue and Cost Specialists (RCS) to perform a comprehensive Land Development Team fee study. RCS and City staff analyzed user fees for the City’s land development process. The study identifies the total cost of providing each service, including development review, design review, zoning review, building permit, engineering, transportation, inspection, code enforcement, and administrative fees. The analysis included an evaluation of staff involved during all stages of project review, time estimates, development of fully burdened hourly rates, citywide overhead, and the calculation of a full cost recovery fee.
The study and staff recommended fee adjustments will be presented to the Finance Committee on March 26, 2019 at 12:30 p.m., David Gebhard Public Meeting Room, 630 Garden Street, and is tentatively scheduled for Council on April 23, 2019.
