Approval or denial and appeal.









(1) Introduction. This section describes the procedure an applicant must follow if his or her application for classification or reclassification under chapter 84.34 RCW is denied, in whole or in part, and he or she wishes to appeal the determination.
(2) General requirement. The granting authority shall immediately notify the assessor and the applicant of the approval or denial of an application for classification or reclassification. An application for classification or classification as open space, timber, or farm and agricultural land should be approved or denied no later than six months after the receipt of this application. However, if an application for classification or reclassification as farm and agricultural land is not denied, in whole or in part, by the first day of May of the year after the application was submitted, the application shall be deemed approved. For example, an application for classification as farm and agricultural land shall be considered approved if it was delivered to the assessor on August 30, 1993, and was not denied prior to May 1, 1994.
(3) Written denials with reasons required. All denials of an application for classification or reclassification shall be in writing and shall include the reasons for denial.
(4) Owner's right to appeal. The owner shall have the right to appeal any denial of an application for classification or reclassification.
(a) If an application for classification or reclassification as farm and agricultural land is denied by the granting authority, in whole or in part, the applicant may appeal to the board of equalization of the county in which the land is located within thirty calendar days of date the denial was mailed.
(b) If an application for classification or reclassification as either open space or timber land is denied by the granting authority, in whole or in part, the applicant may appeal only to the superior court of the county in which the land is located and the application was made.
