The Clearfield County Conservation District follows a strict review and fee schedule. The schedule determines our prices for reviewing and approving permit applications, as well as dates by which we guarantee our permit application reviews and decisions to be completed by.
Most permit application review processes are completed in two steps: firstly the completeness review, and secondly, the technical review. The completeness review's purpose is to ensure that the permit application contains all necessary data and information. The technical review's purpose is to ensure that the permit application's data and information is specific and detailed enough to abide by all Federal and State law.
The District will finish the completeness review within 15 business days from the date of receipt. The District will finish the technical review within 22 business days from the completion of the completeness review.
Timely communication between the District and the applicant is required for expediency.
The following is the fee schedule for the E & S Plan Review:
* COMMERCIAL/INDUSTRIAL/MUNICIPALITY: $700 for the first acre of disturbed earth, plus an additional $100 per acre of disturbance thereafter
* RESIDENTIAL/INDIVIDUALS AND TIMBER HARVESTERS: $150 for the first acre of disturbed earth, plus an additional $25 per acre of disturbance thereafter
* Fees apply to E&S plans associated with Chapter 105 Stream Encroachment General Permits.
