The City of Seattle is in the process of replacing electrical equipment that powers the City’s data center. While we encourage the use of email for submitting PDRs in order to improve timely communications, clarifications, and responses, it is possible that an email could fail to be delivered, particularly in light of the work under way.
In the event you do not receive a response to your email PDR within five business days, please resubmit it via fax, telephone, or via the US Mail.
Additionally, the City’s Public Disclosure Coordinator, Nancy Craver, will be happy to assist you in resolving any PDR-related issues you may have. Nancy can be reached at (206) 684-7029.
In May of 2009, the Seattle City council passed ordinance 122969, requiring all departments to develop and adopt rules by November 1, 2009 indicating how they will implement specific requirements of the Washington State Public Records Act, RCW Chapter 42.56. On November 3, Mayor Nickels signed an interdepartmental rule: Public Disclosure Policies and Guidelines for Executive Branch.
This rule applies to the Department of Planning and Development (DPD).
DPD is committed to providing information to the public in a manner that conforms with both state and local laws and rules. Below is information meant to help the public access DPD’s information.
