(1) The standard term of approval for a preliminary subdivision is pursuant to SCC 30.70.140, except that preliminary subdivision approval may be extended for a period not to exceed four months by the department if the applicant demonstrates that a continued good faith effort has been exerted to complete the final subdivision and provides justification of the extenuating circumstances as to why the additional four months is required. A request for consideration of the four-month extension shall be filed with the department at least 30 days prior to the date the approval is set to expire.
(2) The applicant may request final subdivision approval in phases, subject to the time restrictions in SCC 30.70.140 and the terms of the preliminary subdivision approval. Open space, amenities, and other requirements of the preliminary approval shall be completed coincident with each phase of the final subdivision on a pro rata basis unless otherwise required in the preliminary approval. A revision to the preliminary approval, pursuant to SCC 30.41A.330, must be applied for with the request to complete the final subdivision improvements in phases.
