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 or 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.
