New development fees in effect tomorrow
Tuesday, September 30, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano
As of Oct. 1, the Planning and Development Review Department will implement new fees, raising some commercial, residential, zoning, site plan, building plan and permitting applications 25 percent. The department will also implement boat dock fees that had been approved as part of this budget cycle. The increases are in response to a study by Public Financial Management, which recommended the department limit increases of fees to 25 percent each year until they are brought up to rates comparable to other cities. For more details on the fee changes, visit the city’s website.
