Building Permit Information

Permit Fee

There are three distinct types of fees within the Ground Squirrel Hollow Community Services District.

Annual Assessment Fees:
The District is funded with an annual tax assessment to each & every parcel, collected on the County Property Tax Rolls and transmitted to the District. The initial assessment in 2004 when the District was formed was $240.00 with provision for a 2% annual increase thereafter. An increase of more than 2% requires public notice and majority approval by registered voters in the District.

Developer Fees:
Any new development or upgrade within the District boundaries that requires a County Building Permit will be required to submit a deposit of $1500 for each project to the District. This deposit provides reimbursement of the District expenses, with $250 being non-refundable to offset administrative and processing costs, and $1,250 being a deposit toward engineering, inspection and testing costs, as well as any final repairs that need to be completed on projects of a minor nature within road right of ways such as driveway connections and related drainage. See Developer’s Guide for additional information.
