Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The California Mitigation Fee Act (Cal. Gov. §66000 et seq.) provides for the establishment of fees to mitigate the impacts of new development on public facilities in order to maintain the established level of service. Individual Special Districts do not have the authority to establish these fees; as a result, the County establishes fees on behalf of the districts. In accordance with the Mitigation Fee Act, these revenues are segregated and deposited into a separate account for each district.

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

The total request from the District was $486,728.79 for capital project expenditures through November 10, 2021 in order to expand services based on the demand created by new development. The request includes reimbursements related to Heritage Village Park ($73.32), Saratoga Village Park ($779.13), Bass Lake Regional Park ($27,113.54), Valley View Village Park ($409,462.74), and the Community Center South of Highway 50 ($32,698.84). As is within his authority, the Auditor Controller released a total of $470,127.57 to the district for these expenditures.
