What is the Park Facility Impact Fee Nexus Study?


The County collects two types of fees for parks and recreation (AB1600 fees & Quimby fees) on new development to mitigate its impact on the need for new park facilities - the more people, the more parks needed. The fees are then provided to five Recreation Benefit Zones across Western Nevada County. EPS is conducting a Nexus Study to update the fees that were last updated in 1997. EPS's objective is to identify what the maximum allowable fee that the County can charge; however, the Nevada County Board of Supervisors is responsible for establishing the fee amount and can choose any fee amount up to the maximum allowable fee determined by the Nexus Study.
