Development impact fee changes to be discussed in separate hearings this week 

Officials during separate hearings this week will discuss a proposal by Mayor Gavin Newsom’s administration to overhaul the way that The City charges development impact fees.

The proposal is designed largely to stimulate construction activity. Builders and developers have argued that existing fees and fee rules are preventing construction projects from breaking ground.

The Building Inspection Commission is scheduled to discuss the proposal during a regular meeting scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

The Planning Commission is scheduled to hold a similar discussion during its Thursday afternoon meeting.

The proposal was recently outlined by Newsom adviser Michael Yarne during a Capital Planning Committee hearing. Members thanked Yarne for the information and said their committee does not need to remain involved in discussions.

The proposal will eventually be considered by the Board of Supervisors.
