Public Art Fees

Funding

The Public Art Fund in the City of Coral Springs is a special revenue fund where public art fees are collected during the permitting process for new construction and renovations of existing structures. The General Fund does not finance this program – it is entirely self-funded through fees from new development and redevelopment. Please visit the Land Development Code Section 606 for more information.

As stated in the Public Art Ordinance Section 606, All development, redevelopment, remodeling or converting greater than twelve thousand five hundred (12,500) square feet in gross floor area which are in non-residential districts, or in mixed use or multi-family districts on plots greater than one (1) acre as of the effective date of this section, shall participate in the public art program. When construction is phased, the aggregate gross square footage of the entire project or development shall be added together to determine whether the twelve thousand five hundred (12,500) square foot threshold is reached.

Fee Schedule:

  • New building construction or redevelopment:
    A: Public Art fund contribution, per square foot of gross area: $0.49 per sq. ft*
