P.G. Will Get More Money From Developers

About time the users of the high paid city workers pay the price. Of course, developers like Nadir Agha are against anything that deprives them of an extra nickel.

On Wednesday, the City Council adopted recommendations made by city planning staff to require that the city recover 50 percent of costs for all architectural review permits, design changes and administrative approvals effective March 1, rising to 75 percent on Jan. 1, 2011.

The city currently recovers about 35 percent of the cost of processing the applications, said chief city planner Lynn Burgess.
