1. Amendments to the Land Development Regulations Section 2.4.3(K) “Fees

Description: This is a City-initiated amendment to the Land Development Regulations Section 2.4.3(K) “Fees”, Subsection 2.4.3(K)(1) “Development Applications”. An evaluation of the Delray Beach’s development application fees was undertaken. The review included a comparative analysis of municipalities based upon population, location, and development activity. The municipalities reviewed included the cities of Boynton Beach, Boca Raton, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Wellington, Lake Worth, Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter.  Some municipalities such as Lake Worth, Boca, Wellington, and Palm Beach Gardens use some form of a cost recovery program. This method requires an applicant to pay additional amounts depending on the level of effort performed by staff after the review process is initiated. Whereas, the City of Delray has a “one-time” or “flat” fee for each development application regardless of the effort required. 

Based upon the analysis increases to the development application fees are proposed. The fee increases proposed are designed to achieve one or more of the following objectives:

  • Be more in-line with comparable communities
  • Reduce the public subsidy required to process the applications
  • Serve as a financial barrier to frivolous requests (i.e. Future Land Use Map Amendment)
  • Increase all privately-initiated application fees (i.e. user fees)
