PERMIT CENTER

The Permit Center provides general information for construction inside the City limits.

Construction permits assure that structures are built to nationally recognized standards, designed to ensure that buildings are structurally sound and hazard free.  Land use permits assure that structures meet zoning requirements and comply with environmental regulations (Additional land use information can be found on the Planning webpage).

We are located at 24301 Roberts Drive and are open to the public Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Contact us at (360) 886-5700 if you would like to talk with the Permit Center staff.

The 2012 International Building Codes were adopted by the City on July 1st, 2013. All plans and drawings submitted from this day forward must comply with the 2012 codes. If you have a project currently under construction, the code that was in effect at permit issuance governs those plans unless the permit expires and then you would have to re-apply under the 2012 codes.
