Fee & Payment Information


the fee/payment graphic 2While most divisions within the County receive money from the County's general fund, the Current Planning Services section is almost entirely funded through fees collected during the processing of land use permit applications. These fees are collected to cover application processing  costs.

Application fees are based on the average cost for reviewing individual development action types (subdivision, home occupation permit, temporary use, etc). Costs vary based on location (urban versus rural). The 2019-20 Current Planning Fee Schedule includes both urban and rural fees along with surcharges associated with specific development actions.
