Engineering Plan Review Fees
Each type of development is subject to review fees. Site plan review fees are based on specific quantities of site improvements.

Stormwater Management Review Fees
In addition to engineering plan review fees, a development is subject to stormwater management review fees. The fee schedule is established under Title 21 of the Elgin Municipal Code.

Due to the complexity of the stormwater ordinance, the city often hires consultants to aid in the review, permitting, and implementation of a development’s stormwater management report. To accommodate these services, a developer is required to establish and maintain an escrow account with 2% of the engineer’s estimate of costs.
