Title

Planning and Building Department, with concurrence from the Chief Administrative Office and pursuant to Board of Supervisors Policy B-2, Section II, B(3), recommending the Board approve a waiver of applicable Building and Planning permit review fees in the amount of $1,303 requested by the Community Disaster Resource Center - Lake Tahoe, to host a benefit event at the Celio Ranch for persons affected by the Caldor and Tamarack fires (Attachment A).

 

FUNDING:  General Fund.

Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

The Community Disaster Resource Center - Lake Tahoe will be sponsoring and hosting a benefit event at their Cielo Ranch property located at 2820 S. Upper Truckee Road in Meyers, with the purpose of raising funds for residents in the area whose homes were destroyed as a result of the recent and Caldor and Tamarak fires. One hundred percent of the profit from this event will go to the Community Disaster Resource Center - Lake Tahoe, a 501(c)3 local non-profit organization.

 

Due to the nature of this event and the planned activities, a Temporary Use Permit (TUP) is required. The total estimated fees for this TUP are $1,303, including $496 for Planning fees, $86 for Environmental Management Department fees, and $721 for Department of Transportation fees (Attachment B). The Department, with concurrence of the Chief Administrative Office, is recommending the Board consider waiving the TUP fees in the amount of $1,303, as this event will provide a substantial public benefit.

OTHER DEPARTMENT / AGENCY INVOLVEMENT

Department of Transportation, Environmental Management Department

 

CAO RECOMMENDATION / COMMENTS

Approve as recommended.

 

FINANCIAL IMPACT

These fees are typically paid for by the project applicant. Approval of the fee waiver in the amount of $1,303 would require the use of General Fund to pay for the Planning and Building staff time and materials associated with the plan review for the event. The Department anticipates that there will be adequate General Fund savings to cover the cost of the waiver, therefore, no budget transfer is necessary.
