Good news: A good turnout of concerned El Dorado County citizens was in front of our Board of Supervisors. The board passed the Rural Communities Coalition’s 18-month push for lower cost building permits. Lowering the up front Traffic Impact Mitigation (TIM) fees for new homes by spreading the cost out over 15 years was approved.
The board meeting was held at 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 1, all supervisors voted for the above changes.
Watch the news for the 25 percent fee cuts to become effective on garages, granny units, decks, additions and remodels.
This is a win-win-win for existing and new homeowners, a win for the contractors and building material industries.
Would you like to see your local water supplier hookup fee spread out over say 15 years? I sure would. Give our young folks and young families a better grip on life here in El Dorado County.
