Quimby Fees

This fee is also referred to as the Park Dedication Fee, and it is included in the City of Thousand Oaks Municipal Code. The general purpose is to provide for parks, recreational facilities, and open space areas for the health, safety, and general welfare of future residents and owners of property, and to encourage the orderly development of the City. Under this title, the code requires dedication of land, payment of fees, or both for park and recreational purposes as a condition of a residential development permit. A copy of the municipal code is available through the City of Thousand Oaks' website at www.toaks.org.
