Development Fees The City collects various fees from development to cover the costs of processing permits, including fees for planning approvals, subdivision map act approvals, environmental review, public works and plan check services, and building permits, among others. The City also charges several impact fees to offset the future impact of development on parks, and traffic and circulation. Table III-3 provides a listing of residential development fees in Yorba Linda. As a means of assessing the cost that fees contribute to development in Yorba Linda, the City has calculated the total Building, Planning and Engineering fees associated with development of two different residential prototypes. The first prototype is a 77 lot. single-family residential subdivision consisting of 1,750 to 2,100 square foot units, and the second prototype is a 69 unit apartment complex consisting of a range of one to three bedroom units ranging in size from approximately 700 to 1,050 square . As indicated in Table III-4, development fees for the prototypical single-family project run approximately $19,500 per unit, with School District fees ($5,565), the Eastern Transportation Corridor fee ($3,620), Sewer Connection fees ($3,370), and Parks and Recreation fees ($1,900) comprising the highest cost fees. Per unit fees for the apartment development run approximately $8,700 (Table III-5), with School fees, the Eastern Transportation Corridor fee and Parks and Recreation fee representing the highest cost fees.
