A. Within 14 days of issuance by the City of a building permit, an applicant may appeal to the Planning Director for an adjustment to the fees imposed by this title. The Planning Director may adjust the amount of the fee, in consideration of studies and data submitted by the developer and any affected district, if one of the following circumstances exists:
1. It can be demonstrated that the impact fee assessment was incorrectly calculated;
2. Unusual circumstances of the development demonstrate that application of the impact fee to the development would be unfair or unjust;
3. A credit specified in RCW 82.02.060(1)(b) may be warranted.
B. To avoid delay pending resolution of the appeal, impact fees may be paid under protest in order to obtain development approval.
C. Failure to exhaust this administrative remedy shall preclude appeals of the impact fee pursuant to SMC 14.300.110 below.
