INSTRUCTIONS

  1. All per acre fees are based on the gross acreage of the project site.
  2. Where a maximum fee is indicated, the maximum fee refers to the base fee added to any additional per lot, per acre, or other fee.
  3. Certain applications may be required to have an Environmental Assessment (EA) prepared as part of project review, and are indicated by a check mark (check mark) symbol in the EA column, which will be determined by the Planning Department. No environmental assessment fee is required if a project is determined to be exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act. Only one environmental assessment fee is required, when two or more applications, which indicate an EA may be required, are filed for concurrent processing.
  4. The preparation of special studies in conjunction with certain applications may be required and processing fees shall be payable directly to the affected District or Department. When applicable, Flood Control Plan District Check, Flood Control District Special Study Minor Case - $750.00, Flood District Control Special Study Major Case - $3,000.00, Transportation Department Plan Check - $250.00, Transportation Department Traffic Study (without model) - $1,252.00 or (with model) - $1,811.00.

AVERAGE COST

  • This column is intended to provide information to the public as the actual average cost of case processing for specific application types. The word “Unavailable” is used where there is insufficient data to provide an actual average cost. The words “Flat Fee” are used when the cost for processing is fixed.

FEE APPEAL PROCEDURES

  • Within 10 calendar days of receipt of the full accounting of the application costs or a request for additional deposits, the applicant may request a review of the matter by the Planning Director, who shall review the cost of processing the application. The Director will determine that the costs were or were not appropriate and may then reduce the costs charged. The Director shall, in writing, notify the appealing person of the decision. Work on any application may continue during any appeal process provided there are sufficient funds on deposit.

ABANDONED APPLICATIONS

  • In accordance with the policy adopted by the Board of Supervisors on October 5, 1993, if there is no activity by an applicant on an application for more than one and less than two years, the application is abandoned, and any deposit fees remaining may be refunded.

REFUND OF FEES

  • NON-DEPOSIT CASES: Whenever an application is terminated for any reason, the Planning Department may, in accordance with the Refund Policy Statement adopted by the Board of Supervisors by Resolution 91-135, refund fees paid, upon the written request of the applicant.
  • DEPOSIT BASED CASES: Within 45 days of the final closure of any deposit based fee case, a full refund will be processed for those cases with a balance greater than $5.00.
  • If any portion of the application fees has been paid by the Planning Department to another jurisdiction, agency, or department for the performance of services related to the application, the Planning Department will not refund any such portion of fees until the other jurisdiction, agency or department authorizes the Planning Department to do so. In the absence of such authorization, it will be the applicant's responsibility to contact the other jurisdiction, agency or department for a refund of the fees paid to it, in accordance with the Refund Policy Statement. The Planning Department shall retain a processing fee of $82.00 from the total amount to be refunded.
