Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The California Mitigation Fee Act (Cal. Gov. Code ยงยง 66000-66025) provides for the establishment of fees on new development for the purpose of mitigating the effects of development on existing public facilities. Special districts do not have statutory authority to impose these fees. As a result, the Board of Supervisors has passed an ordinance providing for the establishment of such fees, by the Board of Supervisors, at the request of and on behalf of special districts. The ordinance was codified as Chapter 13.20. Development impact mitigation fees were first collected on the District's behalf in 1998. The District's fee was last updated in 2018, through adoption of Resolution 135-2018 (Legistar file #18-1034).

Following the Board's adoption of the CSD's fees, several developers filed appeals, pursuant to County Ordinance Code 13.20.050 protesting the application of the fee to development within the Serrano Specific Plan. The developers appointed Serrano Associates, LLC, to represent them in their appeals. The County contracted with New Economics & Advisory, Inc. to perform an independent analysis of the merits of the appeals. The consultant determined that it would be appropriate to provide a fee credit for development within the Serrano Specific Plan based on facilities constructed by the developer within that area pursuant to past development agreements. The consultant calculated the amount of the credit, and the District Board has adopted specific fees for development within the Serrano Specific Plan that apply the credit. The previously established fees will remain in effect for all development outside of the Serrano Specific Plan area.
