The superintendent of the Glendale Unified School District said he will recommend that the school board impose state-sanctioned building fees on new homes and commercial developments.
The board is expected Tuesday to discuss whether it wants to take advantage of a new state law allowing school districts to assess up to $1.50 a square foot on newly built or newly remodeled residences and up to 25 cents a square foot on commercial development.
Supt. of Schools Robert A. Sanchis said the fees, if approved, will be used to renovate school facilities, some of which date from the 1920s.
He said the Glendale Board of Education will hold two public hearings, probably in February and March, before making a decision.
