Building and Safety Fees
San Bernardino County Building and Safety fees are primarily comprised of two components, Plan Review fees and Building Permit fees. Both fee components were developed using estimated staff time necessary to perform the respective services, based on a study of three years of plan check and inspection data, instead of being developed using the typical valuation base. The established fees offset the County’s costs to provide enforcement of the California Building Codes, and for services such as plan review and inspections.
Fees paid for plan review include review of initial submittal and one resubmittal for corrections. Additional submittals due to corrections will require additional plan review fees.
