Fairfield-Suisun Unified leaders, when they meet tonight, will review and possibly approve a facility needs analysis and set new developer fees; and review and possibly approve the creation of an ad hoc committee to consider a PLA, or project labor agreement, for construction of district facilities.
First things first: The governing board will hold a public hearing on the school facility needs analysis and the setting of developer fees, in advance of the trustees’ approval, disapproval or modification of a resolution.
Like other California districts, Fairfield-Suisun Unified uses developer fees, sometimes in conjunction of matching state funds, to pay to build new schools.
District administrators recommend Level II fees of $4.85 per square foot for single-family and multi-family units, and the fees will be collected before building begins.
