Fairfield-Suisun Unified leaders will face a relatively light agenda when they meet Thursday night in Fairfield.
There will be a public hearing about a resolution to adopt a developer fee justification study, followed by a trustee vote on the matter, specifically on Level I fees.
By law, California school district governing boards may levy a fee against a developer who builds within a respective district to pay for school construction and related infrastructure in order to accommodate potential growth.
Three levels of developer fees are allowed.
The minimum, aka Level I, is adjusted every two years. In order to assess the fee, a school district must document its justification with a study that, according to agenda documents, “demonstrates a reasonable relationship between residential, commercial and industrial development in the district and the need for additional school facilities.”
