About Development Impact Fees
Development impact fees (DIF) allow cities to collect fees from new development projects to fund improvements that address those projects’ impacts to the City’s infrastructure and facilities. To impose DIF’s, a jurisdiction must prepare a study showing that reasonable connection (nexus) exists between the impacts caused by new development and the capital improvements needed to address those impacts. This study must also calculate the proportional fee that can be assessed on each project that pays for that project’s share of the impact.
Since its inception, DIF’s have contributed to the community in a variety of ways through partially funding capital projects, such as: Park facilities, Verdugo Pool renovation; Central Library Children’s and Teens’ Areas; Buena Vista Library improvements, operating equipment; Police and Fire Headquarters building; Traffic signal synchronization; Interstate 5 / Empire Interchange; Chandler Bikeway and Burbank Channel Bikeway.
On Tuesday, June 7, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. (introduction) and Tuesday, June 21, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. (potential adoption), the City of Burbank City Council will be holding a public hearing to introduce and consider potential adoption of a proposed ordinance updating Community Facility Fees (Title 10, Chapter 1, Article 22 of the Burbank Municipal Code) and adoption of the City of Burbank Development Impact Fee Nexus Study, as recommended by the City of Burbank Planning Board on May 9, 2022. This includes a comprehensive update to the City’s Development Fee Program as supported by a nexus study. Development Impact Fees are fees charged to new development projects to offset the impacts to certain city infrastructure systems caused by the new development. Proposed changes include: 1) updating existing fees as supported by the nexus study, 2) applying the Transportation fee to residential land uses, and 3) adding an Information Technology fee to the Community Facilities Non-Transportation Fee.
The meetings will be held in the Council Chambers in City Hall located at 275 E. Olive Avenue, Burbank, CA 91502. Instructions on how to view the meetings and submit comments during the meetings will be posted online prior to the meeting dates at: https://www.burbankca.gov/web/city-clerks-office/meeting-agendas-and-minutes.
