Developer Fees

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that immediately following a public hearing on the matter, a proposed resolution will be considered by the Governing Board of Livingston Union School District at its regular meeting on April 12, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. which if adopted by the Board will implement development fees established by the District against residential construction and reconstruction at $3.79 per square foot and against new commercial or industrial construction at up to $0.61 a square foot. EC 17620 and GC Section 65995 authorize the proposed fees. Data pertaining to the cost of school facilities is available for inspection during regular business hours at the District's administrative office.  The fee, if approved by the Governing Board, will become effective on June 12, 2018 which is 60 days after the proposed adoption of the resolution levying such fee by the Governing Board.  


Government Code Section 66006(b) requires that each fund established for developer fee revenues, a district shall, within 180 days of the close of each fiscal year, make available to the public the beginning and ending balance for the fiscal year and the fee, interest, and other income and the amount of expenditure by public facility.  
LUSD shall review the accounting of developer fees at a scheduled board meeting, 15 days after the information is available for public review. Next review is tentatively scheduled for September 2018.   

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. 


  • $3.36 per square foot for Residential Construction
  • $0.54 per square foot for Commercial/Industrial Construction
