14.11.010 Vesting.

Vesting of project permit applications occur upon the determination that a fully completed project permit application, as defined in KCC 12.01.100, has been submitted. Vesting shall only apply to land use regulations in effect on the land at the time a fully completed application has been submitted. A project permit application shall be reviewed under the land use regulations in effect at that time. To establish a vested right, the applicant shall file an application on a form furnished by the city official, which form may be amended from time to time. Every application shall, at a minimum, provide the information required by the city for filing of project permit applications as set forth in the application form and applicable codes.

14.11.020 Completed application.

In order to be accepted as fully completed herein, an application for a permit shall be reviewed by the building official, or his/her designee, to verify that all information required has been provided in a clear and usable format. Once it has been determined that all required information has been provided, the building official, or his/her designee, shall accept the filed application and determine the date the application is considered complete and therefore vested.
