Most recently notification fees were variable and based on the number of signs required, number of adjacent property owners and the amount of text in the legal notice and could not be assessed and paid until after the application fee was paid. Effective October 1, 2017, a flat fee for Planning Commission public notifications ​will be implemented and will be paid at the same time as the application fee.
