A Type 1 permit or decision is administratively made by the department. When a complete application is filed, the department provides notice of application, accepts written comments, and then issues a decision approving, approving with modifications or conditions, or denying the application. The department’s decision is appealable to the hearing examiner, or, for a shoreline substantial development permit, shoreline conditional use permit, and shoreline variance, to the state shorelines hearings board. The hearing examiner’s decision on appeal of a Type 1 application is the final county decision. Further appeal may be taken pursuant to a land use petition filed in superior court. For shoreline appeals, the state shorelines hearings board acts in place of the county hearing examiner. (Added by Amended Ord. 02-064, Dec. 9, 2002, Eff date Feb. 1, 2003; Amended by Emerg.
