All new residential, commercial, and industrial development projects valued at $300,000 or more are subject to the HAPP Ordinance. When a commercial/residential developer’s project costs equal or exceed $300,000, the project developer shall acquire and install artwork in a public place on, or in the vicinity of, the project site. The cost or value of such artwork is funded by a 1% percent developer fee of the total project costs excluding land.
Projects that involve remodeling or expansion of existing developments valued at $300,000 or more are also subject to the HAPP ordinance. The developer may opt to pay to the HAPP Fund an amount equal to 1% of the total project costs excluding land in lieu of acquiring and installing artwork.
