Development Fees and Improvement Requirements State law limits fees charged for development permit processing to the reasonable cost of providing the service for which the fee is charged. Application processing fees are charged to defray the costs of reviewing and processing development proposals, reviewing plans and inspections. This includes the costs of staff time, use of vehicles, publishing public notices, mailing notices and printing reports. Planning, building, and engineering fees were analyzed in 2013 as part of an assessment of the City’s inclusionary housing in-lieu fee. The assessment evaluated four prototype housing projects consisting of 25 dwellings. Application fees were compared on a per dwelling unit basis as shown below in Table IV-5:
