Arlington proposes new development review fee

Arlington County staff is proposing a new fee for the acceptance and review of conceptual site plan applications, a process through which developers can get input on their projects before their formal submission. There is no fee currently tied to them but, per an Arlington staff report, each requires about 30 days and 80 hours of review and analysis by a team of staff from four or more agencies. “Considering the amount of effort devoted to the review,” staff writes in its report, a fee of $5,800 is proposed.
