Update on SAB approval of Level 3 Developer Fees
EFSG is following closely the latest developments following the May 25, 2016 SAB authorization to levy Level III Alternative School Develope Fees - first time ever. This action was immediately followed by the Building Industry Association (BIA) filing a lawsuit against the SAB seeking a temporary restraining order (TRO) to set aside the action by the SAB. The very next day, the Superior Court for the County of Sacramento granted the BIA's request for the TRO. A hearing is currently set for July 1, 2016.
If your district is currently collecting Level II fees, you may consider invoking Level III fees, however, we highly recommend that you consult with your attorney first.
As information comes in, we will keep you posted.
Following are resources districts may use when addressing the ongoing process of reviewing, updating and reporting on developer fees. The documents are intended to be fully edited by the district with district-appropriate data and information as appropriate.
