9:30 Forrest Mandeville called in for discussion regarding Planning Fee Schedule. There is not currently a fee for Development Permit variance requests. Forrest noted variance fees vary widely from County to County anywhere from $50 to $500. Commissioner Bullock asked if $250 would cover the cost of the Public Hearing and staff time; Forrest agreed it would. Commissioners also discussed increasing Group 1 fee to $50 to better cover staff review time. Forrest believes all other fees are commensurate to staff time and expenses for processing. Commissioner DeArmond moved to add a $250 fee for Development Permit variances and to increase the Group 1 Development Permit fee to $50; Commissioner Blain seconded; motion carried.
