Proposed Fee Changes

Notice Date, April 26, 2024: Public Hearing: Truth in Taxation Hearing Notice of Tax Increase

In compliance with A.R.S. § 42-17107 the Mayor and Council of the City of Tucson is notifying its property taxpayers of the City of Tucson's intention to raise its primary property taxes over last year's level. The City is proposing an increase of primary property taxes of $64,923 or 0.34%.

For example, the proposed tax increase will cause the City of Tucson's primary property tax rate on a $100,000 home to be $43.11. Without the proposed tax increase, the total taxes that would be owed on a $100,000 home would have been $42.97.

This proposed increase is exclusive of increased primary property taxes received from new construction. The increase is also exclusive of any changes that may occur from property tax levies for voter-approved bonded indebtedness or budget and tax overrides.

All interested citizens are invited to attend the public hearing on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, at or after 5:30 p.m.  The meeting will be held in-person at City Hall, 255 W. Alameda St. For more details regarding the format of the meeting and how interested persons can request to be heard, please check the agenda for further details and/or instructions.

Amended Notice Date, April 16, 2024: Revised Rates and Fees Public Hearing to be held June 18, 2024

On April 9, 2024, City of Tucson Mayor and Council gave notice of intention to revise development rates and fees for Planning and Development Services (PDSD) customers. PDSD will conduct outreach to development stakeholders and the community over the next 60 days to gather feedback prior to the June 18, 2024, Mayor and Council Public Hearing regarding the proposed fee increase.

The development review fee increases would affect PDSD, the Department of Transportation and Mobility (DTM) and Tucson Fire. The fee increase is generally 3.5% in FY2025 and 3.5% in FY2026.

You are invited to review the Year One Proposed Redline Fee Schedule and the Year Two Proposed Redline Fee Schedule. We also ask the community to leave feedback via this online form.

Mayor and Council had given notice of intention to revise rates and fees for the PDSD, as well as Parks and Recreation and Park Tucson during the January 9, 2024, meeting. Through the outreach process, PDSD found an inconsistency in the fee structure and delayed the public hearing to allow for additional community and stakeholder engagement regarding the proposed development fee changes.

During the April 9, 2024 meeting, Mayor and Council approved revisions to rates and fees for Tucson Parks and Recreation and Park Tucson.


Notice Date January 10, 2024: Public Meeting Notice for Revised Rates and Fees

The City of Tucson Mayor and Council have given notice of intention to revise rates and fees for Tucson Parks and Recreation, Park Tucson, and Planning and Development Services customers beginning in FY 2025 and some rate progressing through FY 2030. The City is hosting multiple in-person and two virtual public town hall meetings for the community to find out more about the revisions and provide feedback prior to the April 9, 2024 Mayor and Council meeting to consider approving the recommended fees.

Parks and Recreation

During the December 12, 2023 Study Session, Mayor and Council discussed the proposed fee adjustments or additions to the TPRD schedule of fees. As result of no modifications of park related fees since 2010, the current fee schedule does not allow for efficient and appropriate management of parks and recreation areas and programs.

Fees to be impacted or added include:

  • Elimination of Neighborhood Center Fee: Permitting equitable access to these locations for their available resources. This also potentially reduces the current expense to deposit revenue through a contracted service, which can at times exceed the monthly revenue at the smaller neighborhood centers.
  • Ramada Rental Fees: Right sizing the cost to rent a ramada according to the size and the capacity the amenity offers. It is not currently an equitable approach to pay the same reservation fee regardless of the size of ramada being used.
  • New Commercial Use of Parks Fee: Facilitating the opportunity to partner with businesses who offer services that align to recreation, fitness, outdoor activities, and will be charging their participants a fee. Parks will deem appropriateness of proposed use of a park and define areas of use and frequency of use to the appropriate fee proposed for a daily, monthly, or quarterly basis.
  • Sports Field Lighting Fee: Adjusting to an hourly rate, rather than a rate requiring a minimum of two hours will allow a rental to right sizes their use and manage the impact of cost to have lights on. Additionally, the aim is to encourage cancelation of light use when not being used. This is aligning to the hourly rate approach that Pima County Natural Resources Parks and Recreation uses.
  • Swim Team Utilization of Pools: There are two audiences currently not being served in the aquatic community. One, local private swim teams, and small businesses with an aquatic focus, whom need pools to hold swim training or aqua fitness classes. Two, collegiate swim teams based in northern and mid-western locations that during the winter months are seeking warm outdoor pools for maintaining athlete training programs. With the establishment of fees, Parks and Recreation can advertise and generate additional revenue and potentially attract lifeguards for seasonal employment from the athletes using city pools for swim training.
  • Tennis: Three park locations (Reffkin, Himmel, and Fort Lowell) are managed under an agreement with two tennis management companies who charge fees for tennis and pickleball courts. Having no increase since 2003, the request is made to adjust fees to allow support of the operational costs to maintain these courts and program them for user benefit. A proposed increase over the next six years limits the impact to the public. There are currently 24 free public access tennis courts and 18 free public access pickleball courts. The benefit of the managed courts is the increased daily maintenance, the ability to reserve a court in advance of arrival, coordination of tennis classes, leagues, and tournament participation.

With TPRD fees proposed, unless otherwise represented, the non-city resident fee would be charged at a 20% adjusted rate, and this is reflected in the shared Fee Schedule (Attachment A at the link to the right).

Park Tucson

Park Tucson is a financially self-sustaining division of the City of Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility. The last rate increases to Park Tucson fees and rates were in 2013, except for a rate increase in September 2021 for Centro Garage and Toole Avenue Lot.

Park Tucson’s mission is to professionally manage the City of Tucson’s parking assets to provide safe, accessible, and convenient parking to the community. The proposed rate and fee adjustments would bring the Park Tucson rates closer to existing market rates and assist in covering existing maintenance, service, and security costs.

View the proposed Park Tucson rate fee adjustments.

Planning and Development Services

The Planning and Development Services Department (PDSD) has not increased development review fees since 2010. The proposed increases would also impact development review fees for the Department of Transportation and Mobility (DTM) and Tucson Fire. 

The proposed fee adjustments are as follows:  

  • 3.5% increase in July 2024
  • 3.5% increase in July 2025 

For PDSD, the fees for services include: staff review and building permits for all new development, valuation tables, site review, including floodplain and grading permits, signs, historic review, special district review, rezonings, and special exceptions. 

For DTM, the fees for services include: right-of-way (ROW) permitting and staff review, small wireless facility fees, annual permits for utilities, annual fees for scooters, and other related permits. 

For Tucson Fire, the fees for services include: fire construction permit fees, fire review fees, automatic extinguishing systems, fire alarm systems, above-ground and underground storage tanks, other fire construction permits, fire operational permits, state licensed facility operational permits, special event operational permits, and fire code appeals.   

During this rate adoption process, PDSD will also review the latest International Code Council’s Valuation Tables to determine the impact of updating to the latest available version in conjunction with the proposed fee increase. Updating the valuation tables does not require Mayor and Council action. Development impact fees are not included in this fee increase proposal.

Development impact fees are not included in this fee increase proposal.  

The proposed fee adjustments would allow PDSD to make significant strides in the ongoing commitment to improve the development process in the City of Tucson, ensuring better support and service for the community's needs.

Notice Date August 17, 2023: Proposed Rate Adjustments to the Commercial and Industrial Water Rate Schedule.

In accordance with A.R.S. §9-499.15, notice of intent to establish new fees is hereby given. The City of Tucson Mayor and Council have authorized a Notice of Intention for implementing two possible options to adjust Commercial and Industrial Water Rates and Fees to further incentivize conservation and decrease extreme seasonal variability in water demand within these customer classes. The first option is to adjust the winter period from six months to three for the purpose of calculating the winter average that is used as the consumption threshold for surcharges during the summer period. This change would also change the definition of summer from six months to nine months. The second option would also redefine the winter and summer periods as well as include a third summer surcharge tier for consumption during the summer months that is in excess of 215% of the winter average.

Mayor and Council consideration of the proposed options is scheduled for Tuesday, October 17, 2023. Material supporting the proposed rate adjustments can be found with the City Clerk’s Office and at this link:

Notice Date May 13, 2022: Proposed Fees Restructuring for Development Review to Support New Permitting System.

In accordance with A.R.S. §9-499.15, public notice is given that the Mayor and Council of the City of Tucson will hold a public hearing to consider proposed new fees related to development review to support the implementation of the new permitting system for the City of Tucson.

This fee restructuring proposes minor clarifications and updates to the revised fee previously adopted by Mayor and Council on June 22, 2021, in which fees would be assessed according to (1) staff or plan review costs, (2) inspection costs, (3) public review and notification, and (4) technology fees. The revised table would consolidate fees from three permitting agencies (Fire, Transportation & Mobility, and Planning & Development Services) into a single location according to this structure. The intended outcome is not an increase in fees, but a new structure that is more consistent and transparent for all development-related processes.

Proposed amendments are to UDC Administrative Manual Section 4: Development Review Fee Schedule.

The public hearing will not exceed 1 hour in length unless extended at the meeting. Speakers will be limited to 5 minutes. The Council Chambers is wheelchair accessible and closed captioning is available on cable television. A request for reasonable accommodation for persons with disabilities must be made to the City Clerk’s Office by parties at least five working days in advance of the scheduled meeting and can be made by calling 791-4213 or 791-2639 (TDD).
