Developer Fee History

On January 1, 1987, AB 2926 (Chapter 887) was enacted which requires that school districts pay a share of the cost of school construction based on the square footage of residential, commercial and industrial construction taking place within their districts.  The law commissions school districts to levy a Developer Impact Fee for this purpose, establishes the maximum rate of the fees, and prohibits building permit authorities from issuing building permits without certification from the school district that fee requirements have been met.

AB 181 (effective 10/2/89) established exclusions as follows:

  • Additions to existing homes of 499 square feet of less of assessable space (residential only).

  • Any facility used exclusively for religious purposes exempt from property taxation under the laws of California.

  • Any facility used exclusively as a private full-time day school as described in Section 48222 of the Education Code.

  • Any facility owned and occupied by an agency of federal, state or local government.

How does the fee payment process work?

  • The Certificate of Compliance Form is obtained from the building department with Part II completed.

  • The applicant completes Part I and submits the form to the District with the appropriate fees.

  • The District will complete Part III and certify the form for the applicant to submit back to the building department to obtain a building permit.
