Senate Bill 1598 Regulatory Bill of Rights

1598 Notice and Summary

In 2011 the Arizona State Legislature passed Senate Bill 1598, referred to as the Regulatory Bill of Rights. Among other things this bill modifies the way municipalities must structure and complete their review process on applications submitted for various activities and permits. Some of the major changes resulting from this bill are the stringent reviews processes that must occur. Major points include the following and are effective as of January 1, 2013:

  • The reviewing authority must comply with posted time frames.
    • Review time frames are as established on the City of Peoria 1598 Portal.
    • If posted review time frames are not met the reviewing authority must refund any application fees in conjunction with that particular application.
    • The applicant must make a complete submittal the first time.
      • Any modifications to the submittal which do not directly address 1st review comments will result in a new submittal and new submittal fees.
  • If the applicant fails to receive approval after the 2nd review the application is deemed denied and a new submittal with new fees will be required.
  • The reviewing authority must include in any review comments and or denials explanations for such determinations along with the applicable code references.
  • Partial submittals will not be accepted.
  • There are only a limited number of opportunities to confer with staff and supply the necessary information and materials.

Alternatively the City of Peoria does offer a “Flexible Application Process”. In order to proceed with the “Flexible Application Process” the applicant must select this option at the time of their initial submittal. Once the application has been submitted the applicant may not switch between review processes. The “Flexible Application Process” allows for:

  • Multiple reviews are permitted
    • No new submittal fees are necessary after denial of the 2nd review
    • There is no refund if the review time frames are not met.
  • Reasonable modifications during the submittal process are permitted.
  • Multiple application conferences are available before the submittal and during the process.
