A third-party developer fee justification study conducted by Government Financial Strategies, Inc. concluded that the "District" (Hayward Unified School District) is justified in imposing the fee "on all new residential development (e.g. new construction, demolition and replacement, additions of more than 500 square feet to existing homes, etc.) to the extent allowed by law." emphasis added
