Zoning fees to increase in D.C.
For developers wanting anything from the D.C. Zoning Commission, the cost of doing business with the District will soon go up — generally by 30 percent, The Washington Business Journal reports.
The latest batch of fee hikes from the D.C. government affect almost every transaction within the Office of Zoning, from filings to hearings to copies. Mayor Adrian Fenty has boosted more than 700 fees and fines over the last two years to partly cover the gap caused by shriveling tax revenue. The trend continues with the zoning office, an independent agency.
Under the proposed rules, slated to take effect in mid-September, all zoning commission and Board of Adjustment filing and hearing fees will jump 30 percent. D.C. officials said the last zoning fee increase was 16 years ago.
