Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.
Purpose: RCW 36.70A.270(7) authorizes the board to develop and adopt rules of practice and procedure, including rules regarding expeditious and summary disposition of appeals. In 1992, the then-existing three growth management hearings boards adopted joint rules. These rules have been minimally amended since that time. Therefore, the board has conducted, in conjunction with interested parties, a comprehensive evaluation of its rules and made extensive modifications. Due to the wide-ranging nature of the modifications, the board's existing rules, chapter 242-02 WAC, are repealed in their entirety and replaced with new rules, chapter 242-03 WAC (see notice published in WSR 11-05-087 for new rules text).
