Fee Schedule and Estimators

The Planning and Development Department administers fee schedules approved by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. The Department oversees plan review and inspections related to Parcel Verification (Addressing), Building, Zoning and Drainage. Fee schedules are structured to cover the cost of services. Fees will vary widely depending on the type of project, valuation, and all of the unique elements related to a particular parcel / site.

Reviews may be required from other County departments, i.e., Environmental Services for Onsite Wastewater, Flood Control District, Department of Transportation, Storm Water and Air Quality. Each reviewing agency possesses a set of regulations in which the assessment of fees are dependent on the level of review.

You may refer to the Zoning Ordinance and Local Additions and Addenda for fee schedule information.
