San Juan Capistrano’s City Council will consider a committee recommendation to cut all city development fees, including the fee that residential developers pay to help fund housing for lower-income residents, by 10 percent in response to concerns by a builders group. The council will meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 32400 Paseo Adelanto. Members of the council have said the city’s housing fee could jeopardize the viability of proposed housing projects. The council asked for a review of the fee after representatives of the Building Industry Association of Southern California said the city’s developer fees are some of the highest in the county – up to $100,000 per residential unit.
