Development Fee Exemption Incentive Programs

Public Facilities Fee Exemption Programs

The City of Stockton provides fee exemptions for qualifying residential developments within Stockton city limits. Eligible development projects will receive an exemption for the following Public Facilities Fees (PFF) categories:

  • City Office Space
  • Libraries
  • Fire Stations
  • Parkland
  • Community Recreation Centers
  • Police Stations
  • Street Improvements

The PFF Exemption Programs will sunset once the City conducts the Master Infrastructure Plans and PFF Nexus Study.

For other developments that do not fall under the project scopes listed above, the City's Stockton Economic Stimulus Plan (SESP) provides a fee reduction for single-family and multi-family residential projects and a 50% fee reduction for commercial and industrial projects within city limits. Restrictions and requirements apply.

The SESP Program will expire when the City completes the Master Infrastructure Plans and PFF Nexus Study and the new fees are in effect. For more information, visit the Stockton Economic Stimulus Plan webpage.

To learn more about any program or for an application by mail, please contact the Economic Development Department.

Economic Review Committee (ERC)

Project Teams taking advantage of any development fee exemption programs are also encouraged to meet with the Economic Review Committee. The Economic Review Committee (ERC) is the City's development and site plan review program. It is a free, voluntary service for project developers and business owners looking to invest in new development or major tenant improvements and would like feedback on preliminary site plans and project requirements prior to submitting plans for plan review.
