Fee Schedule

How much should I expect to pay?

For most construction projects, you could expect to spend about 2% of your building costs on plan check, permits, inspections, and other agency fees.

Please be advised that some Plan Check and Permit Fees collected by the Building & Safety Bureau have changed, effective October 1, 2019. These changes are based on the City Cost Index (CCI), and reflect the need for the City to keep pace with the ongoing costs of providing quality public services for construction and building safety.


  • Any fees calculated should be considered as an approximation of the actual project fees. The scope of the project will be the determining factor as to what fees are applicable. To obtain a more accurate estimate, please visit the Development Permit Center.
  • A 3.0% Technology Surcharge and 3.8% General Plan Surcharge have been added to all applicable fees.
  • A processing fee of $47.95 will be added to each Plan Check and Permit application.
