Developer Fee Schedule


What are school Developer Fees?

• Effective January 1, 1987, Assembly Bill 2926, Section 17620 in the California Government Code, authorized school districts to levy school developer fees on new, remodels and additions for residential and commercial/industrial development projects.
• The legislation provides that no Building Permit may be issued until the school districts certify that any fees due have been paid.
• School Developer Fees are a one-time fee that are not associated with and will not be added to your property taxes.

Why are these fees necessary?

• Additional development projects within the District, whether new residential, commercial/industrial construction or reconstruction involving increases of an assessable area greater than 500 square feet, will increase the need for reconstruction and upgrades of school facilities.
• Without the addition of new school facilities and/or reconstruction of present school facilities, any further residential and/or commercial/industrial development projects within the District will result in a significant decrease in the quality of education presently offered by the District.
• Substantial residential development and commercial/industrial development are projected within the district’s boundaries, and the additional students generated from these projects will impact the existing classrooms and schools within the District. As a result, conditions of overcrowding may exist and may impair the normal functioning of the district's educational programs.

What are the revenues collected for?

• School Developer Fees can only be spent on capital facilities projects to mitigate the impact of new development and the students generated from such projects.
