Developer Fees

Government Code Section 65995 and California Education Code Section 17620 allows school districts to levy fees on residential and or commercial/industrial construction projects within a school district’s boundaries. The State Allocation Board (SAB) sets the per-square-foot Level I school impact fees (“Developer Fees”) every two (even) years at its January meeting.  
 
MUSD's Developer Fee Level 1 Rates :
Residential Construction - $4.08/habitable square foot
Commercial/Industrial Construction - $0.66/square foot
Rental Self-Storage Construction - $0.07/square foot
 
School fees are determined based on the square footage of all new construction and additions on residential and commercial property falling within the Mammoth Unified School District boundaries. Any new additions or construction less than 500 square feet is not subject to a fee; however the School Developer Fee form is still required.
 
Process:  
1.  The homeowner/contractor.... pick up an Estimated Permit/Fee Form from the Town of Mammoth Lakes or Mono County if building within MUSD boundaries. (Please make sure if you are building residential that the form shows habitable SQF.)
 
2.  Bring the issued form in person to MUSD to be processed.
 
3.  MUSD has a three part form and will give the white and yellow copy back after payment has has been made.
 
4.  Return the copies to the Town or County so they can process.
 
Fees may be paid by cash or check in person at the Mammoth Unified School District Office, 461 Sierra Park Road, Mammoth Lakes CA 93546. Please make checks payable to Mammoth Unified School District (MUSD). Please call or email to set up an appointment to pay or if you have any questions.
