Fee Study Phase II

The City is currently reviewing its development and impact fees. Generally, cities review their fees for service every three to five years. This allows a City to adjust those fees based on costs, changes in process, or to accommodate new regulations. In Redwood City, it has been over 10 years since many of our fees have been reviewed and updated. Please take a moment to review the plan here.
