As previously mentioned in Step 1, pre-application conferences are not required for the A-1 permit process, which is where building permits fall. Permits are required for new construction, additions, alterations, and more. Our permit applications have a checklist that will let you know what is needed for your project.
We review our plans to the most recently adopted Washington State Building Code and ensure they are checked for consistency with planning and public works requirements.
TIMELINES FOR APPLICATIONS:
Applications can expire. If an applicant has been notified that more information is needed, such as plan resubmittal or fees due, they have 120 days to act. If no action is taken, the application will be cancelled, and the project will need to be re-applied for.
A permit will expire if no work has commenced within 180 days from the date of issuance.
The Building Official can grant an extension to over the counter permits of 180 days if the request is made in writing and the permit has not yet expired. For building permits, half of the original building permit fee must be paid prior to the extension being approved. This extension will be granted for 1 year.
