According to documents released by the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District, the District is proposing a roughly 30% increase on building fees imposed on taxpayers developing within the District.
Evaluations were made for both the proposed adjustment of existing fees and the addition of new fees to cover the cost of the Fiscal Year 2024 budget. A report released by the CFTOD says that there is an average global increase of approximately 30% versus existing fees. The District says that this is a similar increase to the 2016 fee study.
Fees include building permits, plan review fees, revision fees, State of Florida surcharge fees, temporary structure fees, fees for manufactured buildings and trailers, building relocation fees, and permits related to fire alarms, electrical, fire suppression systems, gas, mechanical, plumbing, elevators, escalators, material lifts, and more. Other fees imposed by the District include certificate of operation fees, attraction inspection fees, demolition fees, investigation fees, and many other fees.
The increase in building fees is currently in a proposed status, but it will be voted on in a Board of Supervisors meeting this week.
