A. At the time of development approval, the city shall determine whether school impact fees will be due at the time of building permit issuance. Where such fees are due, the development approval shall state that the payment of school impact fees will be required prior to issuance of building permits. The amount of the fee due shall be based on the fee schedule in effect at the time of building permit issuance. Credit amounts and allocation of credits to be applied against the fees shall be determined at the time of development approval to the extent that information is reasonably available to make this determination. If information is not reasonably available, credit amounts may be deferred to a later date prior to building permit issuance by written decision of the community development director or his/her designee. If a subdivision is involved, any deferred final credit decision shall be issued by the community development director or his/her designee prior to final plan approval. The city may not approve a final plat until all adjustment requests and administrative appeals regarding credit amounts are resolved.
B. The final determination of a development activity’s fee obligation under this section shall be made prior to the application for building permit. Said final determination shall include any credits for in-kind contributions. Final determinations may be appealed pursuant to the procedures established in MMC 3.50.190. (Ord. 005/2019 § 7)
