School Impact Fees

If your construction project contains an addition of five hundred (500) square feet or more of habitable area, your project will be assessed with School Impact Fees per the Government Code.

Title 7. Division 1. Chapter 4.9- Payment of Fees, Charges, Dedications, or other requirements Against a Development Project. Section 65995.

For a complete reference to the code above, please visit

Projects meeting the aforementioned criteria will be required to visit two of the below school districts facilities to pay your fees. Payment is required to be paid prior to having your building permit issued.

You will be provided the required forms to pay these fees from the Building Division when your project has been approved and is ready to issue.  These fees cannot be collected by the City. You will need to go directly to the school districts office to pay the fees.
