New Fee Schedule

The City of Bozeman Department of Community Development took another step to improve customer service on April 27th when we began using a new fee schedule.  The fee schedule is three pages of easy to read and understand information. The new fees are tied to a time analysis that resulted in fees that directly correlate to the time needed to process applications. As a result about 1/3 of the fees were reduced, 1/3 were increased by an inflationary rate, and 1/3 were increased to cover costs. There are a handful of new fees that will go into effect. Two of the new fees will be for zoning review of commercial and residential building permits, which will be assessed at the time of issuance of building permits. Please contact us if you would like an estimate for your project.
