Tonight’s public workshop will address development fees in Del Mar

A public workshop on Sept. 17 will cover the potential changes to Del Mar’s development fee schedule based on a recently conducted analysis which weighed the time it takes city staff to process applications against the fees charged for said applications.

Brian Mooney, planning director for Del Mar’s Community Development and Planning Department, will discuss the study’s findings starting at 6 p.m. tonight in Del Mar’s City Hall Annex.

The city recently hired a consultant to conduct the detailed analysis of the city’s development fee schedule.

Mooney said the development fees currently charged only cover about 30 percent f the city’s costs to process those applications. The money needed to cover the rest of the costs comes from the city’s general fund, which leaves less funding available for community use.

Several options will be discussed to either potentially restructure the current fee schedule or increase development fees to lessen recovery costs taken from the general fund.

“We’re really focusing on public input,” Mooney said. “We’re not making any decisions tonight.”

A public hearing for the changes proposed to Del Mar’s fee schedule is tentatively set for late October or early November and the public input from tonight’s hearing will be included in the findings presented to council.
