Explanation

BACKGROUND:
The Development Services Special Revenue Fund was created to support the activities of the Department of Building and Zoning Services and other agencies charged with the review of private development, construction review, and inspection processes. This fund is supported solely by fees collected from the users of these services associated directly with the private development, construction review, and inspection processes.

The current fee structure has been fully reviewed and compared to the actual cost incurred by the Department of Building and Zoning Services and other reviewing agencies and partners. As a result of this review, some fees have decreased, some have increased, while others have been simplified and condensed to make it easier for developers, contractors and homeowners to better anticipate development and construction related costs.

These proposed fee schedule changes have been reviewed by the Building Services Review Council (BSRC).

FISCAL IMPACT: Fees have been revised to better reflect the City's actual costs associated with the private development processes.
