Pursuant to Government Code Section 66477 and City of Elk Grove Municipal Code (EGMC) Chapter 22.40, a developer is required to dedicate at least five acres of park land per 1,000 residents. This is known as a Quimby dedication. As an alternative to the dedication of land a developer may provide in-lieu fees equal to the value of their required Quimby dedication, known as Quimby In-Lieu Fees. The determination of whether fees or land is required is dependent on the land use identified in the General Plan.
The Cosumnes Community Services District and City of Elk Grove work together with developers with the application and appraisal process for park dedication in-lieu fees.
