Starting January 1, 2011, SDOT will collect fees directly from customers when SDOT review is required on a DPD shoring permit. Customers with projects that require SDOT shoring review that start BEFORE January 1, 2011 will begin receiving monthly invoices in February 2011 for SDOT review charges incurred in the prior month. DPD will collect outstanding fees on projects with SDOT review charges that were incurred prior to January 1, 2011 at the time of permit issuance.
DPD is moving toward a monthly billing process for land use applications. When implemented, later this fall, monthly invoices will be sent for land use projects which accrue fees during any given month. Invoices will be sent to the financially responsible party who will have 30 days to pay the invoice and avoid the cancellation and collection process.
The DPD Land Use program is preparing to implement a monthly billing system to support the Master Use permit (MUP) process. Fees for MUPs are charged at an hourly rate, and can vary based on design considerations, project complexity, public interest, appeal hearings, and customer’s preparedness.
