• SCHOOL IMPACT (DEVELOPER) FEES *Please email nurrea@lcmschools.org for an appointment


    The Larkspur-Corte Madera Board of Trustees passed a resolution to collect school impact fees on new residential and commercial construction within District boundaries. Fees are used only for construction and reconstruction of school facilities. 


    Procedure for Paying the Fee - We can only accept checks at this time.

    1. When you apply for a building permit, the City of Larkspur, or the Town of Corte Madera, will require an approved Developer Impact Fees form signed by a School District Administrator. 

    2. Please come to the  Larkspur-Corte Madera School District Office with your blueprint plans to receive the form and have it approved.  You can also download a copy of the form here

    Larkspur-Corte Madera School District

    Hours: weekdays 8:00am – 3:00pm weekdays - summer hours vary, please call for an appointment. 927-6960x1
    3. LCMSD will calculate the amount of your impact fee based on the following: 
    • Residential development at $3.36 per sq. ft. assessable space: Residential assessable space is defined as all square footage within the perimeter of a residential structure except for carports, walkways, garages, overhangs, patios, enclosed patios, detached accessory structures, or other coverage. Remodeled residential space with a new increase of less than 500 sq.ft. is exempt from school impact fees. Remodeled space with a net increase of more than 500 sq.ft. is assessed with the entire increase. 

    • Commercial development at $0.54 per sq.ft. assessable space: Commercial assessable space is defined as all covered and enclosed space within the perimeter of a commercial structure except for incidental storage areas, garages, parking structures, unenclosed walkways, or utility or disposal areas. Fees are assessed on structures to be used for commercial or individual purposes, most senior housing, adult-only mobile homes, and hotels and motels. 

    4. After the amount is confirmed, and the fee is paid, the Developer Impact Form will be approved and signed by a District Administrator, you can then take the form to the appropriate Building Department to receive your building permit. The Larkspur-Corte Madera School District can only take checks.
