Inspection fees for on-site and off-site bonded improvements.
A. 
Inspection fee escrow deposits.
(1) 
At least one week prior to the beginning of construction or installation of any required improvements, the developer shall notify the Township Engineer, in writing, of the developer's intention to commence such work. All improvements and utility installations shall be inspected during the time of their installation by the Township Engineer or his designee to ensure satisfactory completion, and no underground installation shall be covered until inspected by the Township Engineer or his designee.
(2) 
The cost of all inspections shall be the responsibility of the developer, and he shall deposit the necessary inspection fee with the designated municipal officer upon making application for final approval under this chapter or prior to the start of any construction, whichever shall first occur. The inspection fee shall be in addition to the amount of any required performance or maintenance guaranties and shall consist of a sum equal to the following:
(a) 
The amount of escrow deposit for inspection fees shall be 5% of the total cost of the improvements with a minimum fee of $500.
(b) 
For those developments for which the reasonably anticipated fees are less than $10,000, these fees may, at the option of the developer, be paid in two installments. The initial amount deposited by the developer shall be 50% of the reasonably anticipated fees.
(c) 
When the balance on deposit drops to 10% of the reasonably anticipated fees because the amount deposited by the developer has been reduced by the amount paid to the Township Engineer for inspection, the developer shall deposit the remaining 50% of the anticipated inspection fees.
(d) 
For those developments for which the reasonably anticipated fees are $10,000 or greater, these fees may, at the option of the developer, be paid in four installments. The initial amount deposited by a developer shall be 25% of the reasonably anticipated fees. When the balance on the deposit drops to 10% of the reasonably anticipated fees because the amount deposited by the developer has been reduced by the amount paid to the Township Engineer for inspection, the developer shall make additional deposits of 25% of the reasonably anticipated fees. The Township Engineer shall not perform any inspection if sufficient funds to pay for these inspections are not on deposit.
(e) 
The inspection fee escrow shall be held in reserve by the Township and used to pay the costs of inspecting the construction. It shall be the obligation of the developer to pay for the actual costs of inspecting the construction. Any excess moneys shall be remitted to the developer upon approval of all improvements as provided herein. Any additional inspection costs shall be paid by the developer prior to the approval of the improvements by the governing body as provided for herein.
(f) 
The required guaranties and inspection costs shall be posted with the appropriate Township official prior to the signing of the final plat, the issuance of any building permits or the commencement of any construction.
(g) 
In the event that final approval of a development has been granted in stages or sections and hence the construction of the required improvements is to be undertaken in stages or sections, bonding and inspection of improvements shall also be in stages or sections.
(h) 
In addition to the inspection fee escrow set forth above, at the time the inspection fee escrow is deposited, the developer shall also deposit the sum of $300 for any legal costs in connection with the preparation of any documents by the Township related to the development.
B. 
The minimum inspection cost shall be $500.
C. 
The administration of all funds on deposit shall be undertaken by the appropriate Lacey Township official in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Land Use Law.[1]

D. 
In addition to the inspection fee escrow deposits required by this subsection, the developer or applicant, upon submitting a performance or maintenance guaranty for review or when applying for a reduction or release of any performance or maintenance guaranty, shall include with said submission or application the following escrow deposits: $150 for any engineering inspection required by the Township Engineer, $300 for any legal costs incurred to review any performance or maintenance guaranty and prepare any necessary Township resolution in connection with the application.
[Added 10-10-1996 by Ord. No. 96-46]
A. 
Upon completion of the application as evidenced by the execution of the Mylar, and at the time that the applicant posts all required inspection fees, any unused escrow deposits shall be refunded to the applicant. In the event that the application is denied, all unused portions of escrow deposits shall be refunded to the applicant within 30 days of the date of the adoption of the resolution of denial.
B. 
Prior to the execution of a subdivision map or site plan by the Chairman and Secretary of the Planning Board, the Chairman and Secretary shall require written confirmation from board professionals that there are no outstanding fees in conjunction with the application that are to be charged to escrows. In the event that additional fees to be charged to escrows are submitted, and insufficient funds are on deposit in escrow to pay said fees, the applicant shall be notified to post such additional escrow deposits prior to the execution of the subdivision map or site plan.

SUBSTANTIVE CERTIFICATION
A determination by COAH approving a municipality's housing element and fair share plan in accordance with the provisions of the Fair Housing Act[2] and the rules and criteria as set forth herein. A grant of substantive certification shall be valid for a period of six years in accordance with the terms and conditions therein.

Editor's Note: See Ch. 335, Zoning.
[2]
Editor's Note: See N.J.S.A. 52:27D-301 et seq.
(2) 
All other terms contained herein shall be as set forth in the Municipal Land Use Act, N.J.S.A. 40:55D-1 et seq. and Chapter 211, Land Development Fees, Escrow Deposits and Inspection Fees.
C. 
Amount of residential development fees.
[Amended 3-10-2005 by Ord. No. 2005-08; 9-27-2018 by Ord. No. 2018-29]
(1) 
Imposed fees.
(a) 
Within all zoning districts, residential developers, except for developers of the types of development specifically exempted below, shall pay a fee of 1.5% of the equalized assessed value for residential development provided no increased density is permitted.
(b) 
When an increase in residential density pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40:55D-70d(5) (known as a "d" variance) has been permitted, developers may be required to pay a development fee of a maximum of 6% of the equalized assessed value for each additional unit that may be realized. However, if the zoning on a site has changed during the two-year period preceding the filing of such a variance application, the base density for the purposes of calculating the bonus development fee shall be the highest density permitted by right during the two-year period preceding the filing of the variance application. Example: If an approval allows three units to be constructed on a site that was zoned for one unit, the fees could equal 1.5% of the equalized assessed value on the one unit; and the specified higher percentage up to 6% of the equalized assessed value for the two additional units, provided zoning on the site has not changed during the two-year period preceding the filing of such a variance application.
(2) 
Eligible exactions, ineligible exactions and exemptions for residential development.
(a) 
Affordable housing developments, developments where the developer is providing for the construction of affordable units elsewhere in the municipality or on-site shall be exempt from development fees.
(b) 
Developments that have received preliminary or final site plan or subdivision approval prior to the adoption of a municipal development fee ordinance shall be exempt from development fees, unless the developer seeks a substantial change in the approval. Where a site plan or subdivision approval does not apply, a zoning and/or building permit shall be synonymous with preliminary or final site plan approval for this purpose. The fee percentage shall be vested on the date that the building permit is issued.
(c) 
Development fees shall be imposed and collected when an existing structure undergoes a change to a more intense use, is demolished and replaced, or is expanded, if the expansion is not otherwise exempt from the development fee requirement. The development fee shall be calculated on the increase in the equalized assessed value of the improved structure.
(d) 
Developers of residential structures demolished and replaced as a result of a natural disaster or catastrophic event (e.g., fire) shall be exempt from paying a development fee.
D. 
Amount of nonresidential development fees.
[Amended 3-10-2005 by Ord. No. 2005-08; 9-27-2018 by Ord. No. 2018-29]
(1) 
All nonresidential developers requiring one of the following approvals, except for developers of the types of development specifically exempted within this section, shall pay a mandatory development fee equal to 2.5% of the total equalized assessed valuation of the nonresidential development.
(a) 
All new nonresidential construction on an unimproved lot or lots. This mandatory fee shall be calculated as follows: 2.5% x total equalized assessed value of the land and improvements.
(b) 
Any addition(s) to existing structures to be used for nonresidential purposes. This mandatory fee shall be calculated as follows: 2.5% x the increase in total equalized assessed value resulting from the addition(s).
(c) 
Demolition and replacement of any structure with a structure to be used for nonresidential purposes. This mandatory fee shall be calculated as follows: 2.5% x the difference between the equalized assessed value of the pre-existing land and improvements and the equalized assessed value of the newly improved land and improvements. If the calculation required under this section results in a negative number, the nonresidential development fee shall be zero.
(2) 
Eligible exactions, ineligible exactions and exemptions for residential development.
(a) 
The nonresidential portion of a mixed-use inclusionary or market rate development shall be subject to the 2.5% development fee unless otherwise exempted below.
(b) 
The 2.5% fee shall not apply to an increase in equalized assessed value resulting from alterations, change in use within existing footprint, reconstruction, renovations and repairs.
(c) 
Nonresidential developments shall be exempt from the payment of nonresidential development fees in accordance with the exemptions required pursuant to P.L. 2008, c.46, as specified in the Form N-RDF "State of New Jersey Non-Residential Development Certification/Exemption" Form. Any exemption claimed by a developer shall be substantiated by that developer.
(d) 
A developer of a nonresidential development exempted from the nonresidential development fee pursuant to P.L. 2008, c.46 shall be subject to it at such time the basis for the exemption no longer applies, and shall make the payment of the nonresidential development fee, in that event, within three years after that event or after the issuance of the final certificate of occupancy of the nonresidential development, whichever is later.
(e) 
If a property which was exempted from the collection of a nonresidential development fee thereafter ceases to be exempt from property taxation, the owner of the property shall remit the fees required pursuant to this section within 45 days of the termination of the property tax exemption. Unpaid nonresidential development fees under these circumstances may be enforceable by Township of Lacey as a lien against the real property of the owner.
E. 
Timing of payments.
(1) 
Fifty percent of the total mandatory development fee owed to Lacey Township, whether for residential or nonresidential development, shall be paid prior to the issuance of any building permit required in connection with the development and shall be calculated as follows:
(a) 
For residential developments, the 50% payment required prior to the issuance of any building permit shall be calculated using an estimated equalized valuation of each residential unit as determined by the Lacey Township Tax Assessor.
(b) 
For nonresidential developments, the 50% payment required prior to the issuance of any building permit shall be calculated using an estimated total equalized assessed valuation of the nonresidential development as determined by the Lacey Township Tax Assessor.
(2) 
The remaining portion of the development fee shall be paid prior to the issuance of any certificate of occupancy for any development or any part thereof, whether residential or nonresidential, and shall be calculated using the actual assessed valuation of the development as determined by the Lacey Township Tax Assessor.
(3) 
Because the initial payment required prior to the issuance of a building permit is calculated using an estimated assessed valuation based on estimates for construction costs, the following adjustments are permitted to compensate for differences between the estimated assessed valuation and the actual assessed valuation: If the estimated assessed valuation used to calculate the initial 50% payment was overestimated or underestimated, causing the actual assessed valuation to be less than or greater than the estimated assessed valuation used to calculate the initial 50% payment, the developer's certificate of occupancy payment shall be equal to the difference between the actual assessed valuation and the initial 50% payment as determined by the Lacey Township Tax Assessor.
