Following extensive study, the City Council recently updated Issaquah's land use review fees.
The update ensures that fees charged for land use review better reflect the services performed by the City's Development Services Department.
Before the update, the City conducted a comprehensive study to help better understand the full cost of service and cost recovery related to development-related services.
The study identified the City's labor and non-labor resources, established the full cost of service for development fee-related activities, determined the City's cost recovery rate, and established a framework for cost recovery policies and fee recommendations.
