(a) For a tentative parcel map application within the Director's approval authority, the Director shall make a preliminary decision to approve, conditionally approve or disapprove the tentative parcel map within 35 days after certification of the environmental document for the tentative parcel map. The Director shall provide notice of the preliminary decision to the subdivider and to any person who made a written request to be notified of the decision pursuant to section 81.611(a). If the Director's decision is to disapprove the tentative parcel map, the decision shall include the reason for the disapproval. The subdivider and a person to whom notice is required to be sent under section 81.611(a) may make a written request that the Director review the preliminary decision. The request for review must be received by the Director within seven days of the date of notice of the preliminary decision.
(b) In the event no person makes a written request for review within the time prescribed in subsection (a) the preliminary decision shall become final. If the Director receives a timely filed written request for review of the preliminary decision, the Director shall schedule a review hearing and notify the subdivider, the requester and appropriate County departments and agencies of the date, time and location of the review. After completion of the review, the Director shall within 50 days after the filing of the tentative parcel map render a final decision approving, conditionally approving or disapproving the tentative parcel map. The 50 day time period may be extended with the consent of the subdivider. If the subdivider requests review and the review cannot be completed within the 50 day time period, the subdivider's request shall be deemed to constitute the subdivider's consent to extend the time period for a reasonable time for the Director to act. The Director shall provide written notice of the final decision on the tentative parcel map by U.S. mail to the subdivider and to any person who made request for notice pursuant to section 81.611(a).
