17.13.090 Payment.

(Amended by Ordinance Nos. 173565, 181669, 183447, 189244 and 189413, effective March 6, 2019.)

A.  The Parks and Recreation SDC required by this Chapter to be paid is due upon issuance of the Building Permit.  However, in lieu of payment of the full Parks and Recreation SDC, the Applicant may elect to pay the SDC in installments as is authorized by ORS 223.208 and Chapter 17.14 of this Code.  If the Applicant elects to pay the SDC in installments, a lien will be placed against the property that is subject to the SDC Deferral or Installment Agreement entered into by the Applicant and the City on a form provided by the City, and which may provide for the deferral of payments as set forth in Chapter 17.14 of this Code.  In any event, the Applicant shall either pay the SDC in full or enter into an SDC Deferral or Installment Agreement as provided in this Code, before the City will issue any Building Permits.

B.  Upon written request of Portland Parks & Recreation, the Revenue Division is authorized to cancel assessments of SDCs, without further Council action, where the New Development approved by the Building Permit is not constructed and the Building Permit is cancelled.

C.  For property that has been subject to a cancellation of assessment of SDCs, a new installment payment contract shall be subject to the code provisions applicable to SDCs and installment payment contracts on file on the date the new contract is received by the City.
