Impact fee negotiations continue

Rep. Larry Springer (D-Kirkland) and Rep. Joan McBride (D-Kirkland) have been convening multiple hours of negotiations on the impact fee deferral bill (SB 5923). Although we are not thrilled about being preempted and required to offer deferral programs, the writing is on the wall on that front. Discussions at this point are centered on the best way to ensure repayment is ironclad and that cities retain the ability to withhold certain permits and activities until payment is assured. Discussions seem to be progressing positively, and we hope that this will wrap up in the next few days.
