Assembly Bill No. 2060
CHAPTER 848

An act to amend Section 65962 of the Government Code, relating to development.

[ Filed with Secretary of State  September 26, 1989. Approved by Governor  September 25, 1989. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2060, Costa. Development fees.
Existing law requires a fee or charge adopted upon a single family or multifamily development project, as defined, which applies to the filing or approving of an application or permit, to be enacted in accordance with certain procedures, and be effective no sooner than 60 days following the final action on the adoption of the fee or charge.
This bill would, instead, require a fee or charge adopted on or upon a development project, as defined, which applies to the filing or approving of an application or permit, to be enacted in accordance with certain notice and public hearing procedures, and become effective no sooner than that time period. It would make this requirement inapplicable to any action to adopt or increase a fee or charge which is commenced on or before January 1, 1989.

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 65962 of the Government Code is amended to read:

65962.
 (a)  As used in this section, “local agency” means a city, county, city and county, a school district, and special district.
(b)  Any action adopting a fee or charge, or increasing a fee or charge adopted, upon a development project, as defined in subdivision (a) of Section 66000, which applies to the filing, accepting, reviewing, approving, or issuing of an application, permit, or entitlement to use shall be enacted in accordance with the notice and public hearing procedures specified in Section 54986 or 54992 and shall be effective no sooner than 60 days following the final action on the adoption of the fee or charge or increase in the fee or charge.
(c)  Without following the procedure otherwise required for the adoption of a fee or charge, or increasing a fee or charge, the legislative body of a local agency may adopt an urgency measure as an interim authorization for a fee or charge, or increase in a fee or charge, to protect the public health, welfare and safety. The interim authorization shall require four-fifths vote of the legislative body for adoption. The interim authorization shall have no force or effect 30 days after its adoption. The interim authority shall contain findings describing the current and immediate threat to the public health, welfare and safety. After notice and public hearing pursuant to Section 54986 or 54992, the legislative body may extend the interim authority for an additional 30 days. Not more than two extensions may be granted. Any extension shall also require a four-fifths vote.
(d)  The amendments made to this section by the Statutes of 1989 shall not apply to any action to adopt or increase a fee or charge which is commenced on or before December 31, 1989.
