RAGLM Board > Announcements > Developer Impact Fee (DIF) hearing Tuesday

The actual DIF public comment hearing will be 7/01/14Reply: Michelle Randall
Tuesday's meeting will set the hearing date, which will be 7/01/14. 

"RE-INTRODUCTION OF ORDINANCE NO. 659.13, an Ordinance of the County of Riverside Amending Ordinance No. 659 Establishing a Development Impact Fee Program; Adoption of Resolution 2014-141 Notice of Intent to Conduct a Public Hearing; Adoption of Resolution 2014-142 Notice of Intent to Adopt the Riverside County Development Impact Fee Capital Improvement Plan (DIF); Receive and File the DIF Study Update Final Draft Report; and Receive and File the “Overview of the New 2010-2020 Development Impact Fee Nexus Study.” [$0] (Set for Hearing 07/01/2014 @ 9:30 a.m. – Clerk to advertise)

You can get a good idea of what this ordenance is about by going to the item on Tues.'s agenda, opening #2, and scrolling down to the distribution of fees for each of the areas.  Although the fees seem to have been lowered across the board to encourage development, this is not the case.  The new DIF gives massive dvelopment reductions to the poorest areas that are the most in need of receiving the DIF.  On top of that, fees that were once distributed to parks, trails, library books are now dramaticly reduced because development in general pays nothing toward them.  Only housing development pays anything and those fees are drasticly reduced.  This is the Board of Supervisor's way of building jail cels and it stinks!  Please check it out and plan to attend the hearing 7/01/14.
