VALLEJO, CA – The City of Vallejo has developed a draft new fee schedule and will seek feedback from residents, businesses, developers and stakeholders at a workshop on April 30, 2019. The current fee schedule was last updated in 2011. The City focused on three goals during the draft fee schedule process: simplicity, ensuring code compliance and public safety, as well as encouraging growth and development with competitive fees relative to neighboring cities.

City staff have spent months evaluating all City administrative fees to develop and recommend a new fee schedule. With the assistance of MGT Consulting Group, the City assessed comparable cities, calculated detailed staff cost and time estimates to ensure fees reflected actual cost, identified permits that could be subsidized to encourage compliance and safety, and eliminated or combined redundant fees.

“Vallejo’s fees – from planning development costs to business permitting to building inspection – are critical to the growth and economic prosperity of our City,” said City Manager Greg Nyhoff. “Updating and revising our fees helps simplify the process, ensure buildings are safe for our residents and visitors, and allows our community to move forward and grow.”

The proposed new fee schedule involved the coordination and work across every City department. Staff anticipates bringing the draft proposal to the City Council for consideration in late May 2019.

The April 30 workshop will be an opportunity for residents, businesses, and stakeholders to review the draft fee schedule and ask questions, seek clarification, and provide feedback to the City.

     Tuesday, April 30, 2019
