Public Facility Fees

Public Facility Fees (PFF), also known as Development Impact Fees, are applied to Building Permits and used to build out Public Facilities in response to more development in a municipality. Public Facility Fees can be used to increase the service areas of and build additional fire stations, libraries, police stations, and community centers to address the need for new development. Public Facility Fees also can fund street improvements, traffic impacts, and environmental protections.


Fee Schedule

Public Facility Fees are listed in the City Fee Schedule. The Fee Schedule is updated annually as part of the annual budget process. For a list of current fees or to calculate PFF for a project:


PFF Nexus Study

Fees charged must have a direct connection to the use of the fee, referred to as a nexus. The PFF Nexus Study is a Fee Study to determine that the fee collected is the right amount for the City of Stockton. The Community Development Department issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the City of Stockton PFF Nexus Study to be performed by an unbiased third party.


Community engagement is encouraged and information will be shared via outreach methods including community meetings, press releases, e-mailed information, social media posts, and announcements on the City's Government Access Television Channel.
