Building Permit Information & Forms

Visit the Building Permits / Inspections web page for information on how to apply for a building permit for a variety of case types and the building permit application forms required for each case type.  Building permit applications begin with the Permit Application form.  Most building permit applications undergo consistency review by the Development Review Division (DRD) to ensure compliance with the UDC, Comprehensive Plan, and State and Federal laws.  Some building permits involve associated land use applications, such as a Conditional Use Permit, Variance, or Shoreline Substantial Development Permit. 

DEPT OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FEES

THESE ARE DCD FEES ONLY.  PLEASE CONTACT DCD @ 379-4450 FOR APPLICABLE FEES FOR OTHER DEPARTMENTS.

For assistance in interpreting the permit fee schedule, contact the Permit Technician. Note that the fee for review under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) is only for those proposals that are not categorically exempt from a threshold determination under SEPA. The Development Review Division project planner assigned to the case applies the categorical exemption criteria from the State law to the proposal in order to determine whether the proposal requires SEPA review. The project planner also reviews the proposal to determine what type of permit process is required (i.e., Type I, II, or III) and consequently the appropriate fee.

For information on permit types and a list of land use permits by permit type, visit the DRD page.
