Building Permit Fees
AThe Building Division is responsible for the collection of fees adopted by the County in association with building permits. Depending on the nature of the project these fees may include the building permit and plan review fees, miscellaneous, demolition, mechanical, plumbing, development, grading and erosion control, septic, sewer, exaction, affordable housing, and energy mitigation program fees.
When submitting your plans, you will be required to pay a plan review fee. This fee is equal to 65% of your building permit fee and is charged in addition to the building permit fee. If you would like to estimate the costs on a RESIDENTIAL application feel free to use the building permit fee estimator located in the blue band to the left. The remainder of the fees are due and payable at the time you pick-up the approved building permit. You also may be asked to pay a grading and erosion control fee ($600 for plan level and $350 for statement level), small wastewater facility/septic ($300 for new and $50 for repairs/renewals), and/or sewer connection ($100) depending on the nature of the project.
If you decide not to build after you have submitted your plans and paid the plan review fee, you may be eligible for a refund of up to 80% of that fee. For more information, view the refunds (PDF).
