<br /> JEFFERSON COUNTY <br />DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT <br />621 Sheridan Street <br />Port Townsend, WA 98368 <br />Al Scalf, Director <br /> <br />CODE INTERPRETATION <br /> <br /> <br />This interpretation is made according to Ordinance No. 05-0828-98 Jefferson County <br />Procedures & Criteria to Clarify Land Use Regulations Ordinance, and under Jefferson <br />County Code Chapter 18.40 Article VI Unified Development Code Interpretation. The <br />purpose of these code sections are to allow Community Development to address <br />conflicting or ambiguous wording, clarify the scope and applicability of specific <br />provisions of the land use regulations, interpret the intent of a regulation, or take action <br />regarding conflicts between local land use code and State or Federal law or Court <br />decisions, including informing the public and applicants. <br /> <br />Date: June 7, 2010 <br /> <br />Subject: Substitute Senate Bill 6544 <br />A Washington State Legislature Bill to extend preliminary plat <br />approval from five to seven years <br /> <br />Requestor: Jefferson County Department of Community Development <br /> <br />Issue: Current Jefferson County Code 18.35 Land Divisions limit <br />preliminary Long Subdivisions approval to five years, while <br />Subdivision Ordinance No. 04-0526-92 (applicable only to Port <br />Ludlow Associates) limits the same to three years. Both codes will <br />be in conflict with RCW 58.17 effective June 10, 2010 due to <br />passage of new legislation under SSB 6544 which extends <br />preliminary subdivision approval from five to seven years for long <br />plats. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Senate Bill 6544 Code Interpretation <br />7/14/2010 <br />Page 1
