Fees and deposits are intended to cover the full cost for processing applications. They are not intended to cover the cost for
interpretation of ordinances or for long-range planning. Applicants seeking development which requires more than one type of review
(such as site plans and conditional use permits) must pay all applicable fees and deposits. Applicant acknowledges and agrees that
Applicant’s failure to pay City costs over the base fee amounts, as charged monthly by the City, may result in the City pursuing any or all
legal remedies available, including but not limited to liening Property in the amount owed; prosecution for violation of the City’s
current fee resolution and City land development or division ordinances; issuance of a stop work order, non-issuance of building
permits for Property, or cessation of related proceedings; set-off against any reimbursement owed; and turning amounts owed over to
a collection agency.
Application Deposits: Certain application fees are represented by a deposit amount. Applicants shall be charged for actual processing
costs incurred by the City. City staff time shall be monitored for applications which require a deposit in lieu of a non-refundable fee.
Any unused portion of the deposit shall be returned to Applicant upon completion of the application process, conditions of approval,
and any ensuing appeals. Any additional costs incurred beyond the deposit amount shall be charged to and paid by Applicant on a
monthly basis. Applicant agrees that Applicant’s failure to pay these amounts triggers City’s option to pursue any or all remedies, as
listed above.
Application Fees: Fixed fees are non-refundable and are based on average application processing costs rounded to the nearest $25.
Technical Review/Publication Deposit: The actual costs charged to the City for technical review of land use applications, including but
are not limited to City’s planning, public works, engineering, administration, legal, wetland specialists, geologists, biologists, arborist,
and any other services provided in processing Application, shall be charged to Applicant, at the rate(s) charged to the City. In addition,
the actual costs of preparing and mailing notices to abutting property owners or others required to be notified, the costs of publishing
notices in newspapers, and any other mandated costs shall be charged to Applicant. Such costs shall be adjusted as soon as the specific
amounts are known. Applicant agrees that any deficiencies shall be collected from Applicant, and that Applicant’s failure to pay these
amounts triggers City’s option to pursue any or all remedies, as listed above.
Applicant Owner(s)
I hereby request that my applications be consolidated. I understand that by consolidating these applications, any limited land use
action (site review, partition, subdivision) that is combined with a quasi-judicial action (variance, conditional use permit, or other action
requiring a public hearing) may be subject to a public hearing and the 14-day limitation for written comments will be waived. Wetland
Variances requiring a joint decision by the City Council and Veneta Planning Commission may not be combined with any other land use

(1) Petitions, applications and appeals provided for in this ordinance shall be made on forms prescribed by the City.

consolidated review process. Zone changes and permits required through the application of the overlay district and discretionary

process shall mean that the hearing body shall, to the greatest extent possible, apply concurrent notice, public hearing and
decision making procedures to the permits and zone changes which have been consolidated for review.

to be built upon; the sizes and locations on the lot of all existing and proposed structures; the intended use of each structure; the

information as is needed to determine conformance with this ordinance.

criterion the comment is directed, precludes appeal based on that criterion.

statement that explains the criteria and standards considered relevant to the decision, states the facts relied upon and explains
the justification for the decision based on the criteria standards and facts set forth.
