Development Impact Fee

What is a Development Impact Fee (DIF)

Impact fees provide a method whereby new development pays its fair share of new or expanded public improvements and facilities, including expanded capacity; and to help insure the protection of public health and safety, the City may impose impact fees as provided by the California Constitution. The one-time fee is usually paid prior to issuance of a building permit. Impact Fees are different from, and apply in addition to, application and permit fees, which are used to cover the cost of the City’s review of a given proposal. Information on applications and permits can be found with Planning Department.

The City proposes to collect fees on the following categories:

·Fire Protection Facilities ·Circulation  ·Recycled Water Facilities 
·Park Facilities ·Transportation Facilities       ·Parking Fund
·General Government and Public Facilities        ·Wastewater ·Landfill Fund
