Permit Center
If you are starting a project to build a house, install a furnace, or even remove a tree, this is the place to start. The permit counter operates under limited hours due to budget cuts.


You must call before 4:00 pm the day prior to your requested inspection date. Inspections called in after 4:00 pm will be scheduled for the following day. Specify whether you would like an am or pm inspection, provide your name and phone number, name of the owner of record, site address, and the type of inspection needed.

  • For all building, mechanical, plumbing, sewer, and stormwater inspections, call the permit line at 206-957-2835.
  • For tree permit or sensitive area inspections, call the Assistant Planner at 206-957-2832.

Be prepared for the inspection: be sure to have the permit and approved plans available on site at time of inspection.

The Planning & Building Permit Counter is open for permit submittals as well as planning questions and tree removal information Tuesday through Friday from 9am-12pm and 1pm-3pm. 

We recommend making an appointment with our Planner or Permit Technician prior to bringing in plans for a large submittal.

**As of January 1, 2015 a 5% Development Review Technology Surcharge will be applied to all permit fees**
