Developer fees and developer-built schools

Lozano Smith has long been a leader in the areas of developer fees and developer built schools. We have negotiated numerous developer fee agreements throughout the State. We have also defended challenges to both "Level 1" and "Level 2" impact fees, including through litigation. Lozano Smith has literally written the book on developer fees, publishing the Developer Fee Handbook for School Facilities, which is updated as necessary.

Please complete the following form to submit a request of a Developer Fee Handbook copy. If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail us at:

The Handbook is available for a limited time (2017) at a cost of $100 to public school districts which are also clients of Lozano Smith. The Handbook will be available to non-client public school districts at a cost of $200. Non-public agencies can purchase the Handbook at the full price of $300. Additional copies of the Developer Fee Handbook are available at a cost of $75 for all districts.
