  • Any fee paid on a parcel stays with the parcel. If a permit expires and is re-issued after a fee increase, then the incremental amount is due, regardless of the current property owner.
  • If the permit is on-going and is not finalled, then no increase is due.
  • If a house is demolished and replacement dwelling is proposed, and if the property was receiving a bill for SRCSD charges, then no sewer impact fees are due. SRCSD will allow credit back to 2001.
  • If a duplex is proposed where once stood a single family dwelling, then 1 ESD credit will be allowed, again depending on billing or permit history.
