• Brentwood To Consider Fee Update on April 28

  • Brentwood city staff will seek City Council approval to raise development impact fees effective July 1, 2015, by 3.5 percent and 4.4 percent, respectively, on new single-family and active adult units and drop rates by 12.5 percent on multi-family. The rate for a single-family unit, for example, would increase by $1,254 from $36,040 to $37,294. The council is scheduled to vote on the proposed new rates at a public hearing set for April 28, 2015. The revised fees—the first increase since 2008—were developed as part of the city’s update of its 2005 development impact fee program, staff explained in a stakeholders’ meeting attended by a BIA|Bay Area representative. Staff is also proposing to increase reimbursement rates—payable from the proceeds of the impact fees—for developers who construct the improvements themselves. The funds cover residential developments’ attributable share of the administrative, staff and construction costs for community facilities, parks, trails, roads, wastewater and water plant expansions.
