SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT FEES
For new residential construction of 500 square feet or more (whether it is an addition, remodel, or new dwelling), fees are required to be paid directly to the Laguna Beach Unified School District. The current fee is $2.05 per new square foot.
For permits, contractors may first apply in person at the City of Laguna Beach.
The applicant will be issued a form/certificate from the City that will state the total square footage being assessed.
Payment for School Development Fees can then be made at LBUSD in the Business Services Department (Building B):
Laguna Beach USD
550 Blumont Street
Laguna Beach, CA 92651
(949) 497-7700 Ext. 5212
Check(s) are made payable to Laguna Beach USD.
Forms of payment accepted include cashiers check, company check, or credit card payment.
The final building permit from the City cannot be issued until after payment of School Development Fees.
