BUILDING DIVISION FEE SCHEDULES INFLATION ADJUSTMENT
The proposed resolution for the Newberg Building Division fee schedules are to be adjusted to account for inflation effective April 1, 2017 by City Council. The resolution proposes to approve building division fees to reflect changes in the consumer price index of 2.1%. The current permit fee schedules were based on the December 2015 Consumer Price Index (CPI-U West of 243.4). The City will now use the 2016 CPI-U Portland-Salem annual average (249.426). The 2015 CPI-U Portland-Salem annual average was 244.190. The change also establishes a minimum charge of $81.45 for most permits and makes various minor changes to the fee schedules.
This change will be effective for any permit submitted after March 31, 2017.
Interested persons may deliver written comments by March 17, 2017. You may view the changes at www.newberg oregon.gov, or at the Community Development Department office, 414 E. First Street, Newberg.
