OC Road Fee Programs

Attn: OC Public Works Development Processing Center (DPC Permit Counter & Cashier) is Moving September 3, 2019!  Click here for more details.

The County of Orange has eight active Road Fee Programs.  Each Road Fee program has a specific Area of Benefit (AOB) that determines if a road fee is associated with the building permit application.  Each Road Fee Program also has its own fee schedule which imposes road fees on the building permits for new developments and redevelopments that increase the number of equivalent dwelling units (EDUs) or non-residential / commercial square footage.

Application of Road Fee(s)

Fee(s) are applied at the time of the building permit issuance.  All land use types will be determined by the County of Orange or City Planner and that land use type is used to calculate the appropriate road fee(s).
