What do I need to do to be able to do to demolish a building?

If you would like to demolish a building, you will need to submit a Demolition Form to both Community Development and Olympic Regional Clean Air Agency (ORCAA).

If you choose to demo, please complete the following steps:

  1. Go to the ORCAA website (https://www.orcaa.org/asbestos-demolition-programs/demolition-notification/) and fill out their Demolition Notification Application and pay any applicable fees;
  2. Fill out our demolition form located here: http://www.co.jefferson.wa.us/documentcenter/view/530 and submit it (by email, mail or drop-off) with proof of the ORCAA notification, a copy of the receipt, and a Site Plan;
    1. We always recommend meeting with a Land Use Planner to discuss your property before making any significant changes on your property.
  3. Once we receive your packet we will issue you an invoice which you will be able to pay online or over the phone.
