We collect for Rancho Santa Fe Elementary District, and in most cases, Solana Beach Elementary District and Del Mar Union Elementary District.
Currently the combined statutory fees for both the high school and elementary districts are $3.48 per square foot of livable space for residential and $0.56 per square foot for commercial/industrial. Livable space is determined by the building agency. Residential square footage of 500 square feet or less is exempt from developer fees.
Payment is by check only, and if we are collecting for one of the elementary districts listed above, a separate check payable to the elementary district is required.
