Building permit applications undergo consistency review 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. The Permit Application (PDF) form is the standard building permit application. Supplemental information and forms required will be dependent on the type project. Refer to the list of forms linked to each building permit type below and check with a Permit Technician.
Fees are due at time of application. Consult with a Permit Technician for information on building permit fees. A land use permit fee schedule summary is available online as noted above.
