Type I administrative review shall be used when the proposed development is subject to clear, objective and nondiscretionary standards that require the exercise of professional judgment about technical issues and the proposed development is categorically exempt from the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). Permits reviewed through this process are not subject to the requirements of Chapter 19.07 ECMC. The city may approve, approve with conditions, or deny the application. The decision of the city is final unless an administrative appeal process is provided for in this or any other title within this code. This type of review includes, but is not limited to, the following:

(1) Interpretation of codes and ordinances;

(2) Single-family and other minor building permits not subject to environmental review;

(3) Fence permits;

(4) Boundary line adjustments;

(5) Fill and grade permits;

(6) Encroachment permits to work within a right-of-way;

(7) Flood development permits; and

(8) Minor amendments or modifications to approved developments or permits which may affect the precise dimensions or location of buildings, accessory structures and driveways, but do not affect the overall project character, increase the number of lots, dwelling units or density, or decrease the quality or amount of open space.
