  • State of California
    • State/Seismic Fee - Public Resources Code Section 2705 requires that the City collect a fee for the State of California’s strong-motion instrumentation program for the purpose of administering the program and of acquiring strong-motion instruments and installing and maintaining such instruments as needed in representative geologic environments and structures throughout the state. The fee is assessed at 13 cents per $1,000 estimated valuation on all permits for construction of single or multifamily structures one or two stories high. The charge is 28 cents per $1,000 estimated valuation for multifamily construction three stories or higher and for permits on nonresidential construction. For valuation determination, see Information Bulletin 101, Building Valuation Schedule.
    • Building Standards Fee - Health & Safety Code Section 18931.6 requires that the City collect a fee on all building permits for the purpose of carrying out the provisions of the State Building Standards Law and provisions of State Housing Law that relate to building standards. The fee will be used for the development, adoption, publication, updating, and educational efforts associated with green building standards, and is assessed at the rate of four dollars ($4) per one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) in valuation, with appropriate fractions thereof, but not less than one dollar ($1.00). “Appropriate fractions thereof” is interpreted to be $1.00 per every twenty-five thousand ($25,000) in valuation.
  • County Water Authority

The San Diego County Water Authority (CWA) is a separate agency from the City of San Diego which supplies raw water to the region. They may charge a capacity fee when a new water meter is installed.

This fee is based upon the size of the water meter. A fee schedule is available at www.sdcwa.org. County Water Authority fees are collected through the Development Services Department.

  • School Fees/Deposits

A school fee may be assessed by the local school district(s) for new construction. DSD Information Bulletin 146, School Fees, provides information about school fee requirements, how the fees are calculated, and how to pay school fees to the school district prior to permit issuance.

  • Impact Fees

  • Housing Trust Fund Fees (HTF) are applicable to all new non-residential development, additions or interior remodeling to accommodate a change from the structure’s current use.
  • All private, non-residential permit valuation over certain thresholds (SDMC §26.0714) are to submit a setaside for public art enhancement. This threshold is revised annually, January 1 of each year. Please reference the in-lieu Public Art Fee, or Civic Enhancement Allocation, on the City of San Diego websitefor the latest threshold amount. Prior to building issuance and for more information about Art in Private Development Projects, please contact the Commission for Arts and Culture at (619) 236-6808 to discuss alternatives to comply with the Public Art Ordinance.

A $151.00 hourly plan check fee may be added to all building permit projects for the calculation and assessment of impact fees. Typically, Facilities Financing project reviews may take approximately one hour or less; however, more complex projects or projects with incomplete information may require additional review time.

  • Water & Sewer Plan Check Fees

Development Services assesses a Water and Sewer Plan Check Fee when a water and sewer review of any type is performed. The fee is based upon a combination of the number of Equivalent Dwelling Units (EDU) being reviewed and whether or not a change is being made to a meter. The plan check fee is based per EDU and is charged for both irrigation as well as domestic meters. For the purposes of assessing these fees, 20 fixture units are given a value of one EDU. Table 501D lists Water and Sewer plan check fees.

  • Water & Sewer Capacity Fees

Water and Sewer Capacity Fees are collected on behalf of the Public Utilities Department and are determined during the plan review process. A capacity fee is collected for the maintenance/operation of present water and sewer facilities, as well as future expansion. Water and sewer capacity fees are calculated by Equivalent Dwelling Unit (EDU). Capacity fees can be deferred. For further information,contact Public Utilities at (858) 614-5764. See “Schedule for Water and Sewer Fees” for a list of water and sewer capacity fees.

  • Water & Sewer Installation Fees

Water services and sewer lateral installation fees associated with new construction are collected on behalf of the Public Utilities Department and are determined during the building permit plan review process. See “Schedule for Water and Sewer Fees” for water and sewer services, including potable and reclaimed water for the City of San Diego. A Water Meter Data Card (DS-16) is used to determine the correct size required for water meter, service and sewer lateral.

  • Storm Water High Priority & Areas of Special Biological Significance (ASBS) Inspection Fee

The Regional Water Quality Control Board requires weekly or biweekly Storm Water Inspections on large projects and projects in close proximity to sensitive biological water resources. During plan review all projects are classified as ASBS, High, Medium or Low Priority with regards to their storm water discharge risk. Projects identified as Storm Water High Priority or ASBS are assessed a fee to meet the additional inspections. This fee covers the first four (4) Storm Water Inspections performed beyond normal inspections. If more than four (4) additional Storm Water Inspections are required, additional Storm Water Inspection Fee will be assessed by inspection staff.

Storm Water Inspections (Up to four)$1,010.70

1Fees are based upon the use as defined by the California Building Code (CBC). For mixed use buildings (e.g., residential/commercial projects), fees will be applied based upon the square footage of each use within the structure.

High Rise - Any building having occupied floors 75’ or more above the lowest floor level having building access, regardless of occupancy type.
Tenant Improvement to Occupy Shell - This fee will be used for a building permit that is required to allow a new shell building or space to be occupied.

3For square footages between base square footages, multiply increment rate by square footage over increment square footage and add to base rate. For example, for a 5,500-sq.ft. business use project, the plan check fee would be calculated as $7,983.82 + (2,500 x $0.52) = $9,283.82.

4Each identical structure - This fee will be charged when repetitive single-dwelling unit, duplex or townhomes are identical and are submitted at the same time. The applicable inspection fee will be charged for each structure based on size of the building.

5These fees apply to additions and remodels of single dwelling units and duplexes that qualify for rapid review (over the counter review) per Information Bulletin 140.

6The Repetitive structures fee will be charged when repetitive multi-dwelling unit or non-residential structures are identical and are submitted at the same time. The applicable inspection fee will be charged for each structure based on CBC use and size of the building.

1Fees are based upon the use as defined by the California Building Code. For mixed use buildings (e.g., residential and commercial projects), fees will be applied based upon the square footage of each use within the structure.

Foundation - Footings and slab on grade: Does not include the basem*nt walls for a subterranean structure such as a parking garage.
Frame - The structural frame of a building without the cladding/skin or interior partitions.
Buildout Non-Residential- Skin/cladding for previously permitted Frame + Foundation structure. This permit would turn the structure to a shell building which has to obtain separate tenant improvement building permits to occupy.
Buildout Residential to Occupy - This fee will be used for a building permit that is required for a previously permitted Foundation + Frame residential structure to be occupied.
Shell - A building which has to obtain separate tenant improvement permits to occupy.
High Rise - Any building having occupied floors 75’ or more above the lowest floor level having building access, regardless of occupancy type.

3For square footages between base square footages, multiply increment rate by square footage over increment square footage and add to base rate. For example, for a 100,000 square foot high rise shell, the plan check fee would be calculated as $31,126.71+ (50,000 x $.07) $3,500.00 = $34,626.71.

4 Additional plan check fees will be charged for buildout of all High-Rise buildings regardless of use, and is in addition to the "Commercial Build-Out" and/or "Residential Build-Out to Occupy
