In addition, final review is used to verify compliance with any required conditions. OPTIONAL PRE-SUBMITTAL REVIEW Applicants have the option to submit the application package that includes the numbered items below, for an informal review prior to submitting for the formal application submittal. Contact your assigned Development Engineer to arrange for electronic submission of the application package. If you do not have an assigned Development Engineer within the Planning Division or do not know who your assigned Development Engineer is, please send an email to pwpermitting@rentonwa.gov. This Review occurs prior to substantial completion of project construction and prior to compliance with all the Conditions of Plat Approval related to construction of items in the field. This review is highly recommended to reduce the time between the official final plat application submittal and final plat recording. ELECTRONIC FILE STANDARDS All documents MUST be submitted electronically. Specific file naming conventions for submitted plans are required to facilitate the electronic plan review process. Failure to adhere to the sample file naming format listed in the Electronic File Standards may result in a request for resubmittal and/or delay the plan review process, deeming the application incomplete. FORMAL APPLICATION SUBMITTAL (AT SUBSTANTIAL COMPLETION) To accept your application, each of the numbered items must be submitted at the same time. Determination that an application is complete indicates only that the application is ready for review on its merits, not that the City will make a favorable decision on the application. PLAT NAME: Please ensure that the final plat name is consistent with the name used for the preliminary plat application. APPLICATION SUBMITTAL HOURS Applications should be submitted to City staff electronically, not in person. Please email or call your assigned Development Engineer within the Planning Division to submit your application. TIME FRAME The final plat process takes approximately 6-8 weeks to complete. The time frame is largely dependent upon application completeness and prompt submittal of revisions. This time frame assumes no appeals are filed.

Reviewers have approximately two weeks to return their comments to the Planning Division. All comments and any requests for revisions will be sent to the applicant. Once all comments have been addressed, the applicant resubmits the revised plans and/or documents for review. The time frame for Final Plat processing is largely dependent upon application completeness and prompt turnaround time of revisions. As part of the review process, the assigned Planning, Development Engineering, Construction Inspector will ensure that that all conditions of the preliminary plat approval have been met. Once the applicant has demonstrated these items have been addressed through either a confirmation of improvement installation approval or letter of deferral, the Community and Economic Development (CED) Administrator will issue an Administrative Decision. The CED Administrator’s action to approve, modify, or reject the Final Plat shall be final unless the action is appealed to the City Council within 14 days of the Administrative Decision. EXPIRATION OF FINAL PLAT A final plat, which has not been recorded within six months after approval by the CED Administrator shall expire and be null and void. The plat may be resubmitted as a preliminary plat. The Final Plat may not be recorded until all improvements have been completed and approved by the Planning Division or a letter of deferral has been obtained. SOME KEY THINGS TO REMEMBER 1. City Staff or other agencies may request additional information during the review and decision-making process. 2. It is important that the applicant submit the requested material quickly to avoid delays in the process. 3.
