Staff recommends approval of the amendment to the 2008 Amended Fees, adopted via Resolution No. 8114, to include an $8,000 fee for the Community Development District (CDD) Application.
Since the adoption of the 2008 Amended Fees, a new Application has been created for a CDD. A filing fee has been undetermined to this point. In light of the fact that the first Application of this kind has been submitted, it is now necessary to determine a filing fee. The proposed fee of $8,000 is the best estimate of costs for processing and reviewing the Application, including legal fees. This fee was also evaluated against comparable CDD filing fees in other jurisdictions, including City of Ft. Myers ($15,000); Orange County ($12,000--$15,000); and Hillsborough County ($10,000).
1. Approve the Resolution of the amendment to the 2008 Amended Fees.
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
Approval of the amendment to the 2008 Amended Fees to include an $8,000 fee for the Community Development District Application will allow the City to recover the associated costs. This will serve as a base fee, with any additional review costs being passed on to the applicant.
