For new and existing planning application submittals and/or deposit account replenishments, fees may be made by personal or corporate check or by credit card. Payments greater than $10,000 will need to submitted by check.

  • If paying by check, please coordinate with your Planner to determine the total fee amount and submit along with your application submittal package, or you may send your check payment by US or overnight mail to 4845 Casa Loma Avenue, Yorba Linda CA 92886, Attention: Planning Division.
  • If paying by credit card, staff will direct you on payment instructions via the City’s Payment Portal. You will have to insert your project case number (e.g., CUP 2020-XX) as the “Reference Number” in the appropriate field. You will then receive a payment confirmation from the Payment Portal system, which may be forwarded to your Planner to confirm the payment of fees.
