The Glendora Unified School District, along with the majority of public school districts in California, collects developer impact fees as allowed by Government Code Section 53080. These fees are levied on new construction projects within District boundaries to offset the costs associated with providing additional school facilities for increased student enrollment generated by new housing development within the District’s boundaries. All new construction, and additions to existing buildings in excess of 500 square feet, will be assessed developer fees. Developer fees may be paid at the District Office, in the Office of the Assistant Superintendent of Business Services, Monday – Friday, 8:00- 4:30. Current rates are $3.36 per square foot for residential construction, $ 0.54 per square foot for commercial construction. For more information call 963-1611 extension 361.
