Washington Law Review


Martha Lester


This Comment briefly traces the history of subdivision regulation in Washington as a means of imposing conditions on developers or exacting land dedication or fee payment from developers. It discusses the Hillis Homes decision and analyzes the relationship between the new state statute and other statutory land use regulations. This Comment concludes that, although a municipality's authority to impose development fees has been limited, existing statutory authority still allows a municipality to impose conditions on subdivision development.
