DPD Raising Land Use Hourly Rate

Effective January 1, 2016, DPD will be raising the Land Use hourly rate 12%, a change from $250/hour to $280/hour.  The new hourly rate will be applied to billable review hours or fees that are linked to the Land Use hourly rate that are incurred on or after January 1, 2016.  The current Land Use hourly rate of $250/hour was established in 2001 and has remained at that rate for 14 years. During that time, hard and soft costs for the Land Use program have increased significantly, so it’s time to raise the hourly rate to ensure adequate revenue to cover the program costs.
