On October 1, 2020, the Parks and Recreation Department will begin charging review fees for all site plan, subdivision, and other applications which have come in for formal submittal. These fees are associated with reviews only, and are distinct from the parkland fee in lieu and development fee.
Fee levels are based on a 2019 study of review times and staff resources by the consulting firm, Matrix. The fees were subsequently approved as part of the FY2020 budget, which went into effect in October 2019. There was a delay in the effective date of the fees, because of time needed to insert the fees into the City’s AMANDA database.
Fees will be assessed in the course of review, and will be due prior to approval. The list of review fees is as follows:
|Site Plan/Subdivision site visit (per visit)||$142|
|Development Assessment (with site visit)||$346|
|Municipal Utility District (MUD)||$20,090|
|Planned Development Area (PDA)||$20,090|
|Public Improvement District (PID)||$20,090|
|Planned Unit Development (PUD)||$20,090|
A Parkland Early Determination (PED) is a process which allows the Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) to review a project early to determine parkland requirements: land dedication; payment of a fee in-lieu; or a combination of fee and land. This process and the resulting document are required as part of any subdivision application, with the exception of a Project Assessment (these will have a PED generated as part of the review).
A PED is required for all subdivision completeness check submittals. There is no fee for a PED, and the process takes approximately two weeks to complete. It is recommended that this request be submitted to PARD at least three (3) weeks prior to submittal for completeness check. At the conclusion of the review you will receive a signed letter from PARD that will indicate parkland requirements for the proposed project. This letter will be required to enter into the completeness check process for your proposed subdivision.
To receive a PED, simply email documents that contain the following information to Parkland.email@example.com
- Owner/Applicant Name; Owner consent letter, stating that the owner is aware and gives permission for PARD to research their property
