The Department may approve the use of in-lieu fee mitigation as a category of the mitigation banking program (OAR 141-085-0720 through 141-085-0740 ).

(3) Implementation. The Department will establish a method for implementing in-lieu fee mitigation, including, but not limited to the following elements:
(a) Additional information required for a program instrument outlining the operation and use of an in-lieu fee program, including, but not limited to a planning framework for identifying and securing mitigation sites within the defined service area, proposed advance credit release and justification, and accounting procedures;
(b) Timelines to implement compensatory mitigation projects to satisfy advance credit sales, and
(c) Department approval of compensatory mitigation projects proposed by the in-lieu fee sponsor.
(4) Qualifying Sponsors May Be Limited. The Department may limit the number and type of in-lieu fee sponsors.
