The Board of Education has approved a slight increase in fees that the Los Angeles Unified School District can impose on developers for school construction.
The increase will generate an additional $1.5 million for school construction, a district report said.
Effective June 1, fees on residential development will rise from $1.53 to $1.56 per square foot, while commercial development fees will increase from 25 cents to 26 cents per square foot.
State law requires districts to levy the fees in order to qualify for state school construction money. The state authorized the fee increase as an inflation adjustment.
