Quimby Fee

The fee is also referred to as an “in-lieu” fee. The 1975 Quimby Act is intended to secure adequate open space for parks and recreational purposes. It also authorized cities and counties to pass ordinances requiring developers to set aside land, donate conservation easements, pay fees and/or a combination thereof for park development. Any fees collected may not be used for the operation and maintenance of park facilities.

Park Development Fee

The Park Development Fee, allowed by Ordinance, is a flat fee assessed to each residential unit built within the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Park District and is used for development of park sites. The development fee must be paid to the Land Use Authority at the time the developer obtains a building permit and before a certificate of occupancy can be issued. Development fees cannot be used for maintenance expenses.
