Effective January 1, 2021, Building, Planning and Public Works will have new fee schedules. Documents submitted for process after December 31, 2020 will be allocated fees in accordance to the new applicable fee schedule. The new fee schedule is listed below.
The Master Fee Schedule summarizes all fees the City charges for various services and permits, such as building and plan review fees, use permits and street excavation fees. This schedule ensures transparency and consistency in the fees charged. The Master Fee Schedule is reviewed and approved by the City Council on a regular basis.
Fees are developed based on the cost to the City to provide the service or on the impact the activity has on the City or its property. Thus, the City sets the fees based on cost-recovery and not on making a profit, and rates are set at a figure below full-cost recovery.
