Title 17G Administration and Procedures

Chapter 17G.070 Planned Unit Developments

Section 17G.070.220 Vesting
  1. Applicability.

A planned unit development shall be reviewed under this chapter, the zoning, development and other land use control ordinances contained in Title 17 SMC of the Spokane Municipal Code, and any uncodified ordinances modifying the same, in effect on the date a concept plan application has been deemed fully complete by the City. For the purposes of this section, a vested concept plan application shall mean that the applicant is entitled to implement the planned unit development or any portion of it described in the application under the zoning, development and land use ordinances applied by the City in its review of the planned unit development application.

  1. Subsequent Regulations.

An applicant may have the option of subjecting its development to any subsequently enacted land use ordinances. However, should an applicant choose to subject its development to a subsequently enacted land use ordinance, this shall have the effect of subjecting the development to all land use ordinances enacted after the application is vested. In order for the director to grant such a request, the applicant must demonstrate how later enacted ordinance(s) will benefit both the project and the City while maintaining consistency with the comprehensive plan and will not be significantly detrimental to the health, safety, or general welfare of the City. The director shall review and either approve the request or determine if a new application must be submitted.
