At their February 1 meeting, City Council approved a new fee schedule for Planning & Zoning actions. The new schedule adjusts fees to be more appropriate to the size of Buena Vista and the type of development that occurs in the City. The updates include:
- Lowering the permanent sign permit fee from $50 + $0.25/square foot to a flat $30
- Lowering the site plan review fee from $625 to as low as $100, and creating fee tiers based on amount of development
- Lowering the Certificate of Appropriateness fee for construction from $300 to $100
- And more!
These fee changes will particularly benefit small businesses moving into existing buildings or performing new construction, while still defraying the cost of administration and review of permits.
