Increased Developer Fee Rates
(Approved on May 12, 2022)
A public hearing was held by the Governing Board of the Livingston Union School District at its regular meeting to consider a resolution implementing school facilities fees in accordance with Government Code Section 65995(b)3.  On May 12, 2022, the Governing Board approved Resolution No. 20--2021/2022 to increase its school facilities fees.  New rates will take effect on July 12, 2022. 

Education Code Section 17620 authorizes school districts to levy a fee (known as developer fees) on residential and commercial/industrial development  projects for the purpose of funding the construction or modernization of school facilities. The basis of developer fees is the relationship between new development and the impact on school districts to provide adequate school facilities for the student population that new development generates. Further information on the allocation of developer fees is set forth in Education Code Section 17620, pursuant to Government Code 65995.
