(1) provided an estimate to the applicant;

(2) received the required application fees, as specified by the city;

(3) received a signed acceptance of the fee estimate from the applicant; and

(4) received a signed statement that the applicant has not relied on the estimate of fees in its decision to proceed with the final application from the applicant.
