The possible changes would bring Camdenton closer to the fees charged by several other municipal planning and zoning commissions including Lake Ozark, Osage Beach and Sunrise Beach.

The Camdenton Planning and Zoning Commission is planning to consider potential fee increases for a variety of building projects and permits at an upcoming meeting in February, according to City of Camdenton documents.

City Administrator Jeff Hancock’s most recent staff report from November 21, 2017 indicated the commission might consider changing fees at the February 13, 2018 meeting when it hosts a public hearing on Planned Unit Development (PUD) and site zoning changes as the city is in the process of updating its code based on recommendations from RDG Planning who helped write the new comprehensive plan.

The recommendations comes from from Building and Zoning Department Director Dennis Croxton after a review of other local Lake area planning and zoning districts were analyzed and compared.

According to the comparison report obtained by the Lake Sun, the recommendations include increases for 11 planning and zoning items by as much as $500 dollars.

— Rezoning: 400.280(C) + application — $100 change to $500

— Conditional/Special Use Permit: 400.235(E)(12) + application — $100 change to $300

— Lot Boundary Adjustment: 405.270 + application — $0 change to $50

— Annexation — Remain $0

— Variance: 400.370(D) + application — $100 change to $300

— Planned Unit Development: Same as rezoning — $0 change to $500

— Site Plan Review: New code + application — $0 change to $50 + $100

— Minor Subdivision: 405.080(B) — $0 change to $100

— Major Subdivision: 405.150 — $0 change to $500

— Land Disturbance Blasting: 520.110(E) + application: $50 change to $75

— Floodplain Review: Chapter 415 — $0 change to $100

— Commercial Architectural Review: Remain $50, $100 for appeal

The possible changes would bring Camdenton closer to the fees charged by several other municipal planning and zoning commissions including Lake Ozark, Osage Beach and Sunrise Beach.

The fee for re-zoning applications would match Sunrise Beach and fall below Lake Ozark who charges $600 plus $100 per acre, but above Osage Beach who charges $200 plus impact fees.

Conditional and Special Use Permit would match Lake Ozark, fall below Sunrise Beach who charges $500 and again higher than Osage Beach who charges $200. Variance applications would be inline with Lake Ozark at $300 and Osage Beach at $330, but less than Sunrise Beach at $500.

Planned Unit Development charges and Major Subdivisions see the biggest increases from $0 to $500 with PUD fees matching Sunrise Beach, below Lake Ozark at $600, but above Osage Beach at $200 plus impact fees.

The municipalities of Sunrise Beach and Lake Ozark charge $100 plus $10 per lot and $100 plus $2 dollars a lot, respectively, for Major Subdivisions while the Camdenton proposal would be a flat $500.

Camdenton would also charge $100 for floodplain reviews whereas it doesn’t appear other municipalities collect a fee.
