(a) Citywide Development Fee and Development Impact Requirements Report. In coordination with the Development Fee Collection Unit at DBI and the Director of Planning, the Controller shall issue a report within 180 days after the end of each even-numbered fiscal year that provides information on all development fees established in the Planning Code collected during the prior two fiscal years organized by development fee account and all cumulative monies collected over the life of each development fee account, as well as all monies expended. The report shall include: (1) a description of the type of fee in each account or fund; (2) the beginning and ending balance of the accounts or funds including any bond funds held by an outside trustee; (3) the amount of fees collected and interest earned; (4) an identification of each public improvement on which fees or bond funds were expended and amount of each expenditure; (5) an identification of the approximate date by which the construction of public improvements will commence; (6) a description of any inter-fund transfer or loan and the public improvement on which the transferred funds will be expended; and (7) the amount of refunds made and any allocations of unexpended fees that are not refunded. The report shall also provide information on the number of projects that elected to satisfy development impact requirements through the provision of "in-kind" physical improvements, including on-site and off-site BMR units, instead of paying development fees. The report shall also include any annual reporting information otherwise required pursuant to the California Mitigation Fee Act, Government Code 66001 et seq. The report shall be presented by the Director of Planning to the Planning Commission and to the Land Use & Transportation Committee of the Board of Supervisors. The report shall also contain information on the Controller’s annual construction cost inflation adjustments to development fees described in subsection (b) below, as well as information on MOHCD’s separate adjustment of the Inclusionary Affordable Housing Fee described in Section 415.5(b)(3).
(b) Annual Development Fee Infrastructure Construction Cost Inflation Adjustments. Prior to issuance of the Citywide Development Fee and Development Impact Requirements Report referenced in subsection (a) above, the Controller shall review the amount of each development fee established in the Planning Code and, with the exception of the Inclusionary Affordable Housing Fee in Section 415 et seq., shall adjust the dollar amount of any development fee on an annual basis every January 1 based solely on the Annual Infrastructure Construction Cost Inflation Estimate. The Office of the City Administrator’s Capital Planning Group shall publish the Annual Infrastructure Construction Cost Inflation Estimate, as approved by the City’s Capital Planning Committee, no later than November 1 every year, without further action by the Board of Supervisors. The Annual Infrastructure Construction Cost Inflation Estimate shall be updated no later than November 1 every year, in order to establish a reasonable estimate of construction cost inflation for the next calendar year for a mix of public infrastructure and facilities in San Francisco. The Capital Planning Group may rely on past construction cost inflation data, market trends, and a variety of national, state, and local commercial and institutional construction cost inflation indices in developing its annual estimates for San Francisco. The Planning Department and the Development Fee Collection Unit at DBI shall provide notice of the Controller’s development fee adjustments, including the Annual Infrastructure Construction Cost Inflation Estimate formula used to calculate the adjustment, and MOHCD’s separate adjustment of the Inclusionary Affordable Housing Fee on the Planning Department and DBI websites and to any interested party who has requested such notice at least 30 days prior to the adjustment taking effect each January 1. The Inclusionary Affordable Housing Fee shall be adjusted under the procedures established in Section 415.5(b)(3).
