AB 1600 Reporting: Public facility fees, otherwise known as development fees, are a monetary exaction, other than a tax or special assessment, which is charged by a local governmental agency to an applicant in connection with approval of a development project. The purpose of these fees is to defray all or a portion of the cost of public facilities related to the development project. The legal requirements for enactment of a development impact fee program are set forth in Government Code § 66000- 66025 (the “Mitigation Fee Act”), the bulk of which was adopted as 1987’s Assembly Bill (AB) 1600 and thus are commonly referred to as “AB 1600 requirements.” Each public agency enacting these fees are subject to filing an annual Public Facilities Fee Report necessary to meet the requirements of both California Government Code Section 66006(b) and 66001 (d).
