DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The California Mitigation Fee Act (Cal. Gov. Code §§ 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 on behalf of special districts. The ordinance was codified as Chapter 13.20.

Parks and recreation development impact mitigation fees were first collected on the District's behalf in 1998. The District's fee was last updated in 2018, by adoption of Resolution 135-2018 (Legistar File 18-1034). The current fees are based on a Fee Nexus Study and Report (“Report”) detailing the legal and policy basis justifying the development impact mitigation fee within the District.

Resolution 135-2018 did not include a provision for automatic annual inflationary adjustments to the fee because any increase to the fee must be made by resolution of the Board of Supervisors at a noticed public hearing, pursuant to the Mitigation Fee Act. On July 9, 2020, the District adopted Resolution No. 2020-16, adopting an increase to the fees of 3.3%, based on the change in the Annual Consumer Price Index (CPI) Adjustment for Calendar Year 2019, and requesting the Board of Supervisors adopt the 3.3% increase to the established impact fees.

The proposed fees are as follows:

Current Fee 2019 CPI Adjustment
Single Family Residential $ 11,718 $ 12,105
Multi-Family Res. & Affordable Housing $ 7,734 $ 7,989
Age-Restricted Residential $ 6,848 $ 7,074
Serrano Single Family Residential $ 6,265 $ 6,472
