Riverside County Application Fee Estimator

The purpose of this fee estimator is to provide applicants with a generalized, ballpark average of the total fee amounts required for Riverside County to process the various types of projects listed below. However, this does NOT guarantee that the fees will always be within the range estimated. Every project is unique and may incur additional fees, due to complications resulting from, but not limited to, the project site being located in sensitive habitat or potential flooding areas, having access challenges, or have a potential for public opposition. This tool is intended to better inform applicants by providing an approximation of the total entitlement fee amounts. This estimator does NOT include post-entitlement approval fees, such as Development Impact Fees (“DIF”), Transportation Uniform Mitigation Fees (“TUMF”), or other construction permit related fees. You are encouraged to consult with the Building and Safety Department and other appropriate agencies to determine these post-approval fees.
