Example: Zoslocki said Patterson forces developers to pay more than $96,000 in fees per home, plus extra costs if it is built inside a community facilities district.

He said fees per home are $57,659 in Modesto and $53,741 in Oakdale, and both cities charge more for homes in community facilities districts.

(Hmmm, If Arizona cities increased the fees builders have to pay, builders would have to raise their prices and that would strengthen the prices of resale homes in those outlying areas. Its so crazy, it might just work.)
