Board waives fees to boost jobs program
The Board of County Commissioners has approved a temporary resolution that waives building, development, engineering review and traffic impact fees for businesses wanting to locate or expand in Clark County.
The provision does not apply to residential development, hotels, motels, dormitories or senior housing.
Projects became eligible for the fee waiver June 11, 2013. The program will sunset when Clark County’s unemployment rate is equal to or less than the state’s, but the board can end the program any time.
Chair Steve Stuart voted against the fee waiver and a companion 2013-2014 General Fund budget adjustment that would pay for waivers of up to $3.6 million for development fees and $1.2 million for traffic impact fees.
For more information, contact Marty Snell, Community Development Director, at (360) 397-2375 ext. 4101 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Permit applications and fees must be hand delivered to our Permit Center. Only two applications may be submitted at one time. If you have more than two applications, please call (360) 397-2375 ext. 4926 to schedule an appointment.
