HB 1458 Permit Processing Report Card
 

What does HB 1458 refer to?
In 2002, the Washington Legislature required local governments to report the length of time it takes to process land use development permits. House Bill 1458 requires that local governments calculate average review times, indicate how many land use project reviews exceeded the maximum 120-day review timeline, and make this information available to the public by posting such reports on a City's or County's website, click below for the 2002 and 2003 120-Day Landuse Timeline Reviews.

2003 120-Day Landuse Timeline Review
2002 120-Day Landuse Timeline Review

How is Mercer Island doing with regards to HB 1458?
Some local governments, such as Mercer Island, have adopted a maximum 120-day timeline to review permit applications in their land use development code. This maximum review timeline can be extended either by the mutual agreement of the applicant and city, or by the local reviewing authority if it deems that additional information is necessary to meet review requirements.

During 2003, Mercer Island reviewed 96% of all land use permit applications submitted to the City in an average of 42 days. These included most zoning reviews, subdivision plats, variances, conditional use permits, shoreline permits, deviations and non-residential design reviews. 4% of the land use reviews extended beyond the 120-day timeline by mutual agreement of the applicant and City pending submission of additional information required by the reviewing authority.  Several SEPA decisions were also delayed pending shoreline permit reviews from the State and Federal government.
