The purpose of this chapter is to provide the authority for and the process by which a development impact fee may be imposed for fire prevention, suppression, and safety within the unincorporated territory of the County. Consistent with the County General Plan, the fee may be adopted and imposed by the County for a Fire District that prepares and presents to the Board of Supervisors a study that adequately demonstrates the reasonable relationship between new development and the fee to be imposed. In adopting this ordinance, it is the intention of the Board of Supervisors that new development pay its fair share of the cost of the new fire protection infrastructure that will become necessary to maintain the pre-existing level of fire protection service and thereby mitigate the impact of the new development on a Fire District’s ability to provide such service. (Ord. 2437, § 1, 8/24/2010)
