Larkspur Changes Building Codes, Fees

Failure to follow construction and demolition waste requirements could result in a $10,000 fee.

Before you fire up the bulldozer and tear down that house to make way for your dream chateau, better check the local building ordinances.

There are a couple of changes going into effect in Larkspur:

• Effective June 2 each person who obtains a building permit for a project shall submit a Construction and Demolition Waste (C&D) Diversion Report to the Building Department prior to final inspection of the project, except for those certain projects that may self-certify.

If the Building Official determines that the applicant has not satisfied the diversion requirements of this chapter, the person who has obtained a building permit shall pay an Avoided Disposal Regulatory Fee of 3% of the value of the project, not to exceed $10,000.

• Per Resolution 13/12 building permit fees will increase July 2. Any permits issued after this date will reflect the increase.

Happy homecoming to all the new homeowners. For those looking to move into the neighborhood, here are a few properties for sale:
