Title

AN ORDINANCE relating to school impact fees and comprehensive planning; adopting the capital facilities plans of the Tahoma, Federal Way, Riverview, Issaquah, Snoqualmie Valley, Highline, Lake Washington, Kent, Northshore, Enumclaw, Fife, Auburn and Renton school districts as subelements of the capital facilities element of the King County Comprehensive Plan for purposes of implementing the school impact fee program; establishing school impact fees to be collected by King County on behalf of the districts; and amending Ordinance 18619, Section 2, as amended, and K.C.C. 20.12.473 and Ordinance 10122, Section 2, as amended, and K.C.C. 27.44.010.

Body

STATEMENT OF FACTS:

1.  Chapter 36.70A RCW and chapter 82.02 RCW authorize the collection of impact fees for new development to provide public school facilities to serve the new development.

2.  Chapter 82.02 RCW requires that impact fees may only be collected for public facilities that are addressed in a capital facilities element of a comprehensive land use plan.

3.  King County adopted Ordinances 9785 and 10162 for the purposes of implementing chapter 82.02 RCW.

4.  The Tahoma School District, Federal Way School District, Riverview School District, Issaquah School District, Snoqualmie Valley School District, Highline School District, Lake Washington School District, Kent School District, Northshore School District, Enumclaw School District, Fife School District, Auburn School District and Renton School District have previously entered into interlocal agreements with King County for the collection and distribution of school impact fees.  Each of these school districts, through this ordinance, seeks to renew its capital facilities plan for adoption as a subelement of the capital facilities element of the King County Comprehensive Plan.

5.  Consistent with K.C.C. 21A.28.154, the school technical review committee met on June 13, 2019, to review each school district's capital facilities plan, enrollment projections, standard of service, the district's overall capacity for the next six years to ensure consistency with the Growth Management Act, with the King County Comprehensive Plan and adopted community and subarea plans and with the district's calculation and rationale for proposed impact fees.  The committee concluded that the plans attached to this ordinance accurately reflect the districts' facilities status and concurred with the calculation and rationale for the impact fees.

6.  Washington State Environmental Policy Act review of the capital facilities plans was conducted by the districts as lead agency on behalf of King County, which resulted in Determinations of Nonsignificance.

                     BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KING COUNTY:
