"(J)      For Building Permits deemed complete subsequent to but within one year of the effective date of this subsection (J), impact fees collected for Green Path Developments pursuant to § 14-19-3-1 et seq. shall be calculated at 0% if (1) a certificate of occupancy for the development is issued by the City within one year of the date of the Building Permit being deemed complete, and (2) prior to the issuance of the City's certificate of occupancy, a New Mexico Registered Architect shall certify that the development has been constructed in accordance with the City approved Building Permit in order to qualify as a Green Path Development.

(L) The provisions of subsections (J) and (K) shall not apply if at any time between April 1, 2009 and the effective date of those subsections a building permit was in effect or deemed complete for a building on the same parcel of land and intended to serve the same function as a building permit deemed complete subsequent to but within one year of the effective date of this subsection."     
            SECTION 3.  Section 14-19-3-13(K) ROA 1994 is amended to read as follows:
            "(K) For one year from the effective date of O-09-71, the impact fees shall be due and payable at the time of issuance of the certificate of occupancy by the City or within one year of the date of the Building Permit being deemed complete, whichever occurs first.  The applicability of the reduction will be determined at the time of collection.  Impact fees for mobile homes shall be collected at the time of issuance of a building permit or issuance of a certificate of occupancy.  After one year from the effective date of O-09-71, the impact fees for developments other than mobile homes shall be due and payable at the time of issuance of a building permit."

      SECTION 7.  SEVERABILITY CLAUSE.  If any section, paragraph, sentence, clause, word or phrase of this ordinance is for any reason held to be invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this ordinance.  The Council hereby declares that it would have passed this ordinance and each section, paragraph, sentence, clause, word or phrase thereof irrespective of any provision being declared unconstitutional or otherwise invalid.
      SECTION 8.  COMPILATION.   Sections 1 through 4 of this ordinance shall be incorporated in and made part of the Revised Ordinance of Albuquerque, New Mexico, 1994.
      SECTION 9.  EFFECTIVE DATE.  This ordinance shall take effect five days after publication by title and general summary.
