Alternative to Developer Fees

Development projects with more than 4 units may find it advantageous to annex into an existing Mello‐Roos Community Facilities District (CFD) or create a new one. Please contact Moisés Aguirre, Assistant Superintendent of Facilities and Operations at 619‐585‐6060 or moises.aguirre@sweetwaterschools.org for more information about the creation or annexation process.
