REVIEW PROCESS: Once the Final Plat application is submitted to the Planning Division, the materials will be routed to those City departments having an interest in the application. 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 re-submits the revised plans and/or documents for review electronically. 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 Plannin g and Public Works Plan Review Divisions will ensure improvements have been installed and approved and 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 City will schedule the Final Plat for review by the Hearing Examiner. The Examiner will issue a decision within 10 business days (RMC 4-8-11012c). Examiner’s action to approve, modify, or reject the Final Plat shall be final and unless the action is appealed to the City Council within 14 days of the Hearing Examiner’s written report. DEFERRAL OF IMPROVEMENTS: 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. The applicant may request a letter of deferral from the Board of Public Works and post security for any improvements that have not been completed. If a developer wishes to defer certain on-site improvements for more than 90 days after obtaining Final Plat approval, then a written application shall be made to the Board of Public Works. Should the Board of Public Works so rule, then full and complete engineering drawings shall be submitted as a condition to the granting of any deferral. Upon approval for such deferment, the applicant shall thereupon furnish security to the City in the amount equal to 150% of the estimated cost of the installation and required improvements. Time Limits: Such security shall list the exact work that shall be performed by the applicant and shall specify that all the deferred improvements shall be completed within the time specified by the Board of Public Works, and if no time is specified, then no later than one year. EXPIRATION OF FINAL PLAT: A final plat, which has not been recorded within six months after approval by the City Council shall expire and be null and void. The plat may be resubmitted as a preliminary plat.
