What are Development Impact Fees?

The City charges impact/connection fees to pay for additional infrastructure needed as a result of development. You will owe impact and/or connection fees if you are:

  • Constructing a new building
  • Changing the use of a building
  • Adding square footage to an existing building
  • Manufacturing food/beverages that will impact the wastewater (sewer) system

How do I estimate impact/connection fees?

To estimate impact/connection fees, please contact the Planning Division:

Email: petalumaplanning@cityofpetaluma.org
Phone: 707-778-4470

If your business project will impact the wastewater (sewer) system, please also contact Patrick Pulis, Environmental Services Division, at ppulis@cityofpetaluma.org.

 

How do I pay the fees?

Impact and/or connection fees are collected by the Building Division. You will not receive a Building Permit or Final Building Inspection until impact and/or connection fees are paid.

Contact the Building Division (cdd@cityofpetaluma.org) for information about how and when to pay your fees.
