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.

This method uses a facility "standard" established for future development, against which facilities costs are determined based on "units of demand" or a "level of service" from a development. This approach established a generic unit cost for capacity, which is then applied to each land use type per unit of demand. This standard is not based on the cost of a specific existing or future facility, but rather on the cost of providing the current level of service for the District. The nexus study has been reviewed by County staff and appears to meet all the requirements of the California Mitigation Fee Act.

The current fees were established by Resolution 178-2007. The current and proposed fees are as follows:
