Development Impact Fees are charged by the local government agencies in connection with approval of development projects. The purpose of these fees is to defray all or a portion of the cost of public facilities related to development projects. The legal requirements for enactment of a development impact fee program are set forth in Government Code § 66000- 66025 (the "Mitigation Fee Act"), the bulk of which was adopted as 1987's Assembly Bill (AB) 1600 and thus are commonly referred to as "AB 1600 requirements."
California Government Code section 66006 (b) (2) requires cities to prepare and make available to the public the Development Impact Fee Report within 180 days after the last day of each fiscal year. The City Council must review the annual report at a regularly scheduled public meeting not less that fifteen days after the information is made available to the public. The report was posted on the main landing page of the city's website and filed with the City Clerk’s office and available for public review on November 21, 2022. It will be considered by City Council on December 7, 2022.
