9:30 Forrest Mandeville called in for discussion regarding Planning Fee Schedule. There is not currently a fee for Development Permit variance requests.

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.
