A development agreement gives the developer assurance that the development rules applicable to the project will not change during the term of the agreement. The city or county may require conditions to mitigate the impact of the project, as well as clarification on the phase of the project and the timing of public improvements. RCW 36.70B.170 describes the appropriate type of development standards in a development agreement. For example, the development agreement may stipulate that you must approve each step of the development of your company`s website. If you want to make changes along the way, it can lead to additional costs or delays, so it`s important to know how many changes you can make at no extra cost and how soon you`ll expect them to be made. Long-term development agreements sometimes require changes when market or other conditions change. In the same way, a developer may have to terminate a contract if they can`t secure financing or if they want to do something completely different with the property. Either party may attempt to terminate an agreement if the terms of the agreement have not been met. Most agreements offer some flexibility for such changes, if the parties agree. A development agreement is a voluntary contract between a local court and a person holding or controlling property within the jurisdiction, detailing the obligations of both parties and defining the standards and conditions governing the development of the property. Although the agreements are voluntary, they are binding on the parties and their successors. A third report gathered research to account for the history of local agriculture and the development of the rural communities of Bell and Coryell County between 1849 and 1942, and to develop a process for Fort Hood to make management decisions to avoid the most important of these historic archaeological sites (Freeman et al. 2001).
This report included a series of visits to family and community gatherings to collect historical photos and some spontaneous oral history interviews. These sources were synthesized with the previous three reports in order to propose a publication that, with the help of numerous illustrative photographs, recalled local history (Pugsley 2001). .
