Date of Adoption: March 30, 2001.
Purpose: Delete the requirement for prorating architectural and engineering fees in two steps based on the size of the projects. Fees would instead be assigned to projects based on the fee schedule for projects in size ranges. This change will simplify the procedure by scheduling a range of square footage for which a percentage applies. Then the square footage for any project will fall into a range, and the appropriate percentage will be used for the entire square footage: A simple, one step multiplication.
