At the January 24, 2012 Board of County Commissioners’ meeting, the Board adopted a revised Zoning Application Fee Schedule to reflect new applications that were added by the 4th Amendment to the Zoning Resolution. None of the previous application fees changed and there were no changes to the Subdivision Application Fee Schedule.

At the January 24, 2006 meeting of the Board of County Commissioners, the Board adopted new schedules for subdivision and zoning fees. The Board modified fees as the result of citizens' comments at a January 10th public hearing. The fee increases stem from a comprehensive study of time and services that the staff in the Planning and Zoning Department performs in connection with each application. The study was conducted over the past several months by Eric Parish of Public Resource Management Group (PRM) of Denver. The study was conducted to identify the true cost of fee related activities ensuring a clear relationship between the cost of the service and the fees that are charged. PRM looked at actual costs of time spent on applications in the Planning and Zoning Office in fiscal year 2004 and looked at 2004 and 2005 volumes of activity in the office.

+ This symbol means that the applicant shall be responsible for payment of all associated publication fees.

* This fee will only be charged if the holder of a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) or Special Revue Permit (SRU) does not submit documents required as a condition of the approval of the permit [i.e. copies of current leases, a (prior to expiration), copies of Annual Mining Reports to the Colorado Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety; Renewed Stormwater Permits; Air Pollution Permits; Technical Revisions; etc.] to the Department of Planning and Zoning on an annual basis or as otherwise required.  If the Department has to notify the permit holder that such documents have not been submitted then the fee will be charged.  If the fee and required documents are not submitted to the Department within twenty (20) days of the Department notification to the permit holder, violation procedures will be commence.

A full application fee will be charged to the applicant, if all deficiencies as per the initial application review letter are not adequately addressed or provided.  Each subsequent deficiency review letter will result in another full application fee.  All such fees shall be paid along with the deficiency submittal, prior to any further review of the application.

The applicant shall be responsible for payment, at hourly rae for each employee, at that employee’s hourly wage rate, for any hours which exceed the initial application review hours.

Any application for a use permit or change of zoning that has been initiated after the use requiring a permit or change has been established o the property shall be subject to a penalty fee in addition to the set application fee for such permit or change.  The penalty fee will be the same amount as the application fee set for such permit or change.  In effect a double application fee shall be charged at the time of application in such circumstances.  (Example:  The application fee for a Special Review Use Permit is $1,800.00; the penalty fee will be $1,800.00, and therefore the application fee for a permit to house the proposed use would be $3,600.00.)  For these purposes an application for Home occupation shall not be considered as a use permit application.  As with all land use applications, payment of application fees do not insure approval of the application.
