Building Fees

Our fee schedule and tools are meant to assist you in estimating building fees.

Actual building fees vary from project to project. Final project fees may include items we collect on behalf of other agencies, e.g. 12% of all fees collected are returned to the State.

Additionally, projects within the City of Canby use their adopted fee schedule.

We will discuss specific fees with you when you submit your plans or application.
