An application shall be null and void if the applicant fails to submit the requested additional information within an accumulative 360 days from the Department's request or within a time period as specified by the Hearing Examiner.
A. The Director shall have the authority to grant one 60-day extension of time for projects other than final plats that have received the majority of all required approvals and have submitted documentation that all remaining approvals can be obtained within the 60-day time extension.
B. The Director shall have the authority to review an application(s) permit system record and make any necessary corrections to the application(s) expiration date as a result of inaccurate and/or missed data entries. Documentation of the corrections shall be made part of the file's written record.
C. The Director shall have the authority to grant a one-time 180-day extension for final plat applications that have received the majority of all required approvals and have submitted documentation that all remaining approvals can be obtained within the 180-day time extension.
D. Any applications applied for prior to July 28, 1996, that have not gone before the Hearing Examiner, unless time extensions have been granted, shall be null and void.
E. At the applicant's request, the Director may grant one or more time extensions, in addition to the extensions listed above, where additional information, studies, reports, or analysis is requested by the County, or where the applicant can demonstrate there are extenuating circumstances that have caused delay that were beyond the applicant's control or where litigation or appeals not initiated by the applicant have delayed application processing or final approval. The extensions may be granted to allow for County review of application materials, or to allow a written order or decision to be issued or a public hearing held.
F. In circumstances where the time extension is necessary to account for submittal of subsequent information, studies, reports, or analysis, the expiration date of the initial application may be extended to match the expiration date of a subsequent application which is necessary for project approval. However, the initial application expiration date may not be extended to match the expiration date of any subsequent application submitted after an accumulative 360 days, or other time period established by the Examiner, has passed.
