The City of Wildomar is holding a special City Council study session Wednesday night to discuss fees charged to developers who want to build in the city.
The 6 p.m. public meeting at City Hall will analyze development impact fees and a proposed schedule to raise them. City staff is seeking direction from council members on how to proceed.
When the city incorporated in July 2008, it adopted the development impact fees established by the County of Riverside.
Since that time, city staff -- with help from the contracting services of Colgan Consulting Corporation -- completed a study that analyzes the impacts of future development in Wildomar, as well as calculated fees to mitigate those impacts. As a result, under a proposed plan expected to be presented Wednesday, development fees in Wildomar would rise significantly.
The California Business Industry Association has expressed concerns over enacting new development impact fees given current economic conditions. Additionally, Wildomar resident George Taylor has expressed concerns in an email to the city.
During Wednesday's meeting, the public will have an opportunity to comment.
The meeting will take place at City Hall located at 23873 Clinton Keith Road.
